The six reported cases of people infected by the E. coli bacteria is just one part of a much larger investigation being conducted on the national level.

In a Tuesday, April 10 update, the CDC reports the outbreak had further reached the Midwest in OH and Pennsylvania. Restaurants and retailers are not now advised to avoid serving or selling any particular food. Idaho is right behind with four infections.

A total of six cases were reported in New Jersey along with four in Idaho, two each in CT and Pennsylvania and one each in Missouri, Ohio and Washington. Currently, scientists are matching the bacterial DNA in an attempt to link the cases and trace their origin.

The people who have been confirmed sickened in the outbreak fell ill in late March, according to the CDC. People believed to have been infected first reported feeling sick as early as March 22 to 31, with the patients ranging in age from 12 to 84.

As I've mentioned above, there is only one confirmed case of E. Coli infection in the OH state. More information will be provided as it becomes available, the CDC said.

The particular strain of E. coli involved in this outbreak can cause bad stomach cramps, vomiting and bloody diarrhea. More severe cases can result in hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.

According to the CDC website, the current investigation includes the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service and is ongoing as a specific food item, grocery store, or restaurant chain has not been identified as the source of infections.

The CDC doctors recommend people in the affected areas to frequently wash hands, properly prepare foods, wash vegetables and fruits, and avoid unpasteurized products.
