Since the outbreak was announced, Marler Clark has been contacted by families of two Mississippi children who remain hospitalized due to acute kidney failure and the families of Alabama and Louisiana children also stricken by E. coli O157:H7. We have filed 1 lawsuit – others will be filed next week.
On August 9th, the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) announced it had identified several cases of E. coli O157 infection associated with use of the swimming pool and/or splashpad at the Jellystone Park Camp Resort-Yogi on the Lake in Pelahatchie, Miss.
The cases identified so far have exposure dates on the weekend of July 30th through August 1st, but additional exposures may have occurred through August 9, 2021. The pool and splashpad were closed on August 9, 2021.
This is an evolving situation and MSDH is conducting an ongoing investigation to identify any additional cases.
Individuals who were swimming in the pool or splashpad at Yogi on the Lake in Pelahatchie between July 30 and August 9 should monitor for symptoms of stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and fever. Consult a healthcare provider immediately if you do have symptoms and tell your provider about your exposure.
