About E. coli infection
Anyone who has eaten any related product and has symptoms of an E. coli infection should seek medical attention and inform their doctor of their possible food poisoning. Specific tests are needed to diagnose the infection, which may be similar to other diseases.

Symptoms of E. coli infection vary from person to person, but usually include severe stomach cramps and diarrhea, which is usually bloody. Some patients may also have a fever. Most patients recover within five to seven days. Others may experience severe or life-threatening symptoms and complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

About 5 to 10 percent of people diagnosed with E. coli infection develop a potentially life-threatening complication of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Symptoms of HUS include fever, abdominal pain, feeling very tired, less frequent urination, small unexplained bruising or bleeding, and pallor.

Many people with HUS recover within a few weeks, but some suffer permanent damage or die. The condition can occur in people of any age, but is most common in children under five because of their immature immune systems, in older adults because of a deteriorating immune system, and in people with compromised immune systems, such as cancer patients.

People experiencing symptoms of HUS should seek emergency medical care immediately. People with HUS may be hospitalized because the condition can lead to other serious and ongoing problems, such as high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, brain damage, and neurological problems.
