DETROIT (AP) — A heath official says a Michigan resident who recently was in northern Germany is among four people in the U.S. apparently sickened by the food poisoning outbreak in Europe.
Kelly Niebel, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Community Health, tells The Detroit News for a Monday story that the person is recovering in southeast Michigan.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday announced that three of the four were hospitalized with kidney failure, a complication of E. coli that has become a hallmark of the outbreak. The News reports the person from Michigan had kidney failure.
The E. coli outbreak in Europe that's linked to vegetables has killed 22 people and sickened more than 2,200.
