In an interview with CBC News, Ontario's Associate Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams, warned
the strain of E. coli associated with an outbreak at a youth camp in Ontario, 0157:H7, is the same highly dangerous strain that killed seven people in Walkerton, Ont., 10 years ago.
The number of cases of E. coli associated with eating Leadbetter Cowboy Beef Burgers has risen to five with at least one more suspected case being investigated.

Williams told CBC News that some of the cases occurred at a youth camp in Ontario, and that one of those sickened by the tainted burgers had to be hospitalized. That person has now been released, and everyone else who got ill has recovered.
Williams added,"If you ate at that time and you did have an illness that you thought was 'I don't know what happened I just feel unwell' you may still want to contact your health unit."
Please contact your health unit if you have any product purchased in the middle of August or were sick after eating the burgers.
