  • Description:
    The Laboratory-based Enteric Disease Surveillance (LEDS) system contributes to the understanding of human Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) in the United States by collecting reports of infections submitted by state and regional public health laboratories.1 Reporting to LEDS is voluntary; the number of laboratories submitting reports varies somewhat from year to year, although almost all public health laboratories report every year. Occasionally, more than one isolate is reported from a single episode of infection in a person; this report includes only one isolate of a given STEC serogroup per person within a 30-day period. Data in this report are current as of February 8, 2017. Recommended citation: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
