FYI: CDC has an epi report on the e.coli outbreak in this
week's issue of MMWR. I have no idea what they mean by the "embargo"
I am not including the actual text of the article in this message,
but if you have trouble getting it from the CDC sources, send me a
private E-mail and I'll forward a copy to you.
The January 10, 1997 ASCII text edition of the Morbidity and Mortality
Weekly Report is enclosed. Please note that this information is
embargoed until 12:01 a.m. Friday, March 29, 1996.

* Notices toReaders
CDC's official MMWR electronic copy-of-record is the MMWR in Adobe
Acrobat.pdf (portable document format). This electronic MMWR is
identical in content to the paper copy-of-record. The ASCII document
is NOT an official document of record and should be used with
caution. The ASCII file below was created by an automated process and
thus has not been proof read. It also lacks tables, charts, graphs,
and photographs. In some cases there
may be significant character translation errors (e.g. for Greek
letters and other scientific symbols).
To receive the official electronic MMWR.pdf copy of record readers
should select one of the following choices :
* send an e-mail message to listserv at listserv.cdc.gov. The body
content of the e-mail should read: ADD mmwr-toc
* retrieve the MMWR by connecting to CDC's anonymous FTP file server:
ftp.cdc.gov. The user name is "anonymous" and your e-mail address is
* connect to CDC's World-Wide Web (WWW) server to access the
electronic MMWR.pdf and free reader software. CDC's WWW address is:
http://www.cdc.gov/. Go to "Publications, Products, and Subscription
Services" then "MMWR." Download the binary file by selecting the blue
MMWR title of your choice.
* Paper subscriptions are available from the U.S. Government Printing
Office and Massachusetts Medical Society.
* If you do not have access to either FTP or the WWW, you may
retrieve the MMWR via e-mail from the Majordomo list server. This
process is much slower and more complex than either anonymous FTP or
the World Wide Web.
Copy the following script, and paste it into an e-mail message
addressed to lists at list.cdc.gov:
get mmwr mmwr.archive.970110
Majordomo will send the file uuencoded. Depending on your e-mail
some sites may have to process the received mail with a uudecode
utility to create an acceptable binary file readable by Acrobat. If
the e-mail system does not have uudecode, contact your e-mail
administrator. Uudecode software is available free of charge at many
FTP sites on the Internet.
* If you have other problems or questions, send e-mail to
mmwr-questions at list.cdc.gov
