The health agency says the type of bacteria found in these cases is E. coli 0157:h7, which can cause severe illness including cramping, bloody diarrhea and kidney failure.

Officials say since July 15 there have been 59 confirmed cases in Calgary, 48 cases in Edmonton, seven cases in the South, six cases in the North and two cases in the Central zone.

Alberta Health Services says it hasn’t found the source of the E. coli.
