Outbreak of Kidney Disease

Florida Girl's Death May Have Link To E. Coli Outbreak

Florida Health Secretary John Agwunobi said there are 14 confirmed cases of people who attended the Strawberry Festival in Plant City or the Central Florida Fair in Orlando in early March and who have since been sick, and either tested positive for E. coli, or a kidney disease that sometimes results from E. coli infection.

This is a real mystery, they think it may be from the petting zoo at the Central Florida Fair and/or the Strawberry Festival, but they don't know. There are petting zoos everywhere and kids have been around farm animals forever, why would this happen now? You can't take your kids anywhere anymore.
