74 people have fallen ill with E. coli O157:H7 after dining at Federico’s Mexican Restaurant in Litchfield Park, Arizona between July 18 and July 30.  Of those ill, 23 were or currently are hospitalized. Most of those patients have since been discharged.  Two patients suffered hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).  One child still remains hospitalized.

I was in Arizona today meeting with families and counsel for Federico’s.
