E. coli “Beast Feast” in Alabama Church

The Associated Press story caught my eye – “Several sick with E-Coli after "Beast Feast" at Mobile church.”

Several people, including a 7-year-old boy, have been hospitalized when they became sick with E. coli after eating food at a cookout known as the "Beast Feast" at a Fairhope church. As many as 20 others reported becoming ill after the cookout and potluck meal that was attended by 300 people on February 16. Eight stool cultures have tested positive for E. coli O157:H7.
