The CDC did not provide any updated statistics today about the number of people sickened in the ongoing E. coli O157:H7 outbreaks linked to ground beef (still 26 illness in 11 states, with 2 deaths and 3 HUS), but the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) did update the list of retail stores who may have received contaminated ground beef.  The list is long and comprehensive and, to me at least, suggests that the number of people who may be involved in at least the Fairbank Farms outbreak may continue to grow.  See the FSIS update here.
