Twenty-three people, twenty of them under 18 years of age, have been infected with E. coli O157:H7, according to an updated report released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The youngest victim is 2 years old.

Ten of the victims have been hospitalized, and seven are suffering from hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a potentially life-threatening complication of E. coli O157:H7 infections.

Illnesses have been reported from nine states, including Arizona (4), California (5), Maryland (1), Missouri (1), New Jersey (1), Oregon (6), Virginia (2) Washington (2) and Wisconsin (1).
