Wild Boar or Waste Water? Who Slimed the Spinach?

When it comes to E Coli, California is unlucky because there are many cases of it. In fact, the first case of E Coli was in Oakland in 1975. The first corporation connected to E Coli contaminated hamburger meat in 1982 was also found in California. The first case of E Coli in wild boars was associated with a contaminated spinach outbreak in 2006 irrigated with recycled sewage water known to contain bacteria. There were over 20 outbreaks of E Coli since the first case and people are wondering whether the wild boar or the recycled sewage water is causing this problem.
