French Broad Farm Raw Milk E. coli Outbreak and Litigation

Tennessee health officials have announced two separate E. coli O157:H7 outbreaks in Knoxville Tennessee. A total of 15 children were picked, 9 were hospitalized, and 7 developed HUS.

One outbreak is linked to raw milk from French Broad Farm in Mascot, TN. 10 children drank raw milk from French Broad Farm

Knox County has issued a public warning advising consumers to throw away all raw milk and unpasteurized products from the farm. 

The second outbreak was liked to Kids Place, Inc., a child care facility in Mascot, Tennessee. Health officials linked the outbreak strain to goats present at the child care facility. E. coli O157 is naturally found in the intestinal tracts of many farm animals, including goats, sheep, and cows.

If you start to experience symptoms, seek medical attention and contact the Knox County health department immediately (865) 215-5000.
