Three Florida HUS Linked Fairs Had Same Petting Zoo

Recombinomics Commentary
March 31, 2005

>> While he said other causes haven't been definitively ruled out, one company, Ag-Venture Farm Shows of Plant City, provided the animals for the petting zoos at all three, Agwunobi said.

``It's increasingly clear to us that one of the few, if not the only, bridging event appears to be a very specific petting zoo _ Ag-Venture,'' Agwunobi said. ``We have a very strong suspicion that there is an association with this petting zoo.'' <<

The linkage of Ag-Venture Farm Shows to all three festivals raises the questions about earlier exposures and additional hemolytic uremic syndrome HUS cases. 

The Ag-Venture Farm Show is featured at many fairs throughout the east.  Below is a list of websites that mention the exhibit at fairs since August, 2004. 

The list is not likely to cover all or even most of the fairs featuring the exhibit.
