A family cluster of three cases of Escherichia coli O157 infection was identified in France. Two cases developed haemolytic-uraemic syndrome. The source was fresh unpasteurized goats" cheese, produced by an independent producer. Three E. coli O157 strains, isolated from one HUS case and faeces of one cow and one goat, were indistinguishable by toxin type and PFGE pattern.
