The investigation by the Fresno County Health Department has not resulted in voluntary or mandatory recalls. Fresno County Health Officer Ed Moreno said that public health does not appear to be at risk at this time. 

Moreno also said that health officials have inspected the Meat Market in north Fresno, since meat from that location was purchased for the three private parties that health officials are concentrating on in their E. coli investigation. 

The six individuals with E. coli food poisoning range in age from toddlers to older adults, and tests have shown that they had a strain of E. coli O157. 

Initial symptoms of E.coli O157:H7 infection include severe abdominal cramps and watery diarrhea. The diarrhea may become bloody and can lead to dehydration. Sometimes there are no symptoms at all. There is usually little or no fever. Symptoms generally resolve in 5-10 days, but serious complications may ensue. Children and the elderly are at greatest risk of developing complications.
