About E. Coli

Escherichia coli (E. coli) can cause serious illness in humans, including diarrhea, often with bloody stools.  Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).  HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly.  This condition can lead to serious kidney damage and death.

Diagnosis of E. Coli Infection

Always put your health first.  If you suspect that you have contracted E. coli or are experiencing food poisoning symptoms, contact your doctor.  He or she can order a stool culture to confirm E. coli infection.
