Escherichia coli O157 can cause a life threatening infection. Over a two-week period in September 2000, 32 prisoners in North Dorset became infected with E. coli O157. None of the staff were affected. An outbreak caused by this organism had occurred in the prison four years previously. Investigations revealed that certain conditions in the prison provided an ideal environment for the transmission of gastrointestinal infections.
