We assessed shedding duration and secondary household transmission of Shiga toxin 1-positive Escherichia coli O26 during a childcare-associated outbreak. No severe illness was noted. Shedding duration was 15–46 days (median, 29). No secondary transmission to household members was identified. Value of isolating asymptomatic infected children with this low-virulence infection remains uncertain.
