E.coli Infection Kills Idaho Toddler

E.coli infection is suspected as the cause of death in a 2-year-old boy, who had consumed spinach shake. Health officials said the total tool from the spinach infections has risen to 166.

Kyle Allgood, of Chubbuck died on Wednesday at a hospital in Salt Lake City. Ross Mason, a spokesman for the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, told Reuters that E.coli was suspected in his death. "His mother or someone in the house made him a spinach smoothie," Mason said. "It's pretty likely that he died of E. coli."
