A 73-year-old male from the Germantown area died today from complications of E. coli infection.

“Our hearts go out to his family and loved ones. This is a very difficult time for everyone. You may rest assured that Public Health will continue to examine all aspects of this foodborne tragedy,” said Montgomery County Health Commissioner Jim Gross.
Investigators from Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County are working to trace the source of the outbreak.
