(UPI) — Cholera bacteria that infected five persons in Abbeville and Kaplan can^ from crabs caught in a 75- mile coastal stretch from Mud Lake in Calcasieu Parish to Pecan Island in Vermilion Parish, a federal health official said Monday. Paul Blake, a medical epidemiologist with the National Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, said seafood from the area was safe to eat if it were thoroughly cooked and properly stored in clean containers. "The risk is very low," he said. "We have seen just a few isolated cases." Blake told a, news conference the persons who became ill with cholera or showed signs of infection all had eaten crabs caught from an area south of Pecan Island or from Mud Lake. Cultures still are being taken from the region but so far cholera bacteria has been found only in shrimp, he said. Blake said he svas expecting confirmation that a 19-year-old Abbeville woman was the fourth case of cholera reported in coastal Vermilion Parish since the first one in mid- August. . A fifth person, the 15- year-old daughter of one of the confirmed cases, showed cholera bacteria in tests but did not have clinical symptoms of the disease.
