On July 18, Pure Éire Dairy and Creamery of Othello, Washington, closed its doors after a decade in business. In May, The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) announced that it had identified six cases of E. coli causing illnesses in multiple counties in Washington State. Three individuals required hospitalization, and one developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). By June 23, the DOH had linked the outbreak to those who had either consumed or been in contact with consumers of Pure Éire Dairy PCC Community Market brand yogurt. 17 people developed E. coli infections, 10 were hospitalized, 4 developed HUS, and none died. Due to the investigation, the dairy stopped producing the yogurt and eventually closed its doors. While the company denies a connection, the company is subject to two lawsuits filed in Washington State on behalf of minor children who allegedly became ill after consuming Pure Éire yogurt, claiming negligence on the part of the dairy brand. @ https://bestlifeonline.com/news-pure-eire-dairy-closed/
