E. COLI SICKENS AT LEAST 65 IN CARBON LIVE FIRE MEXICAN GRILL E. COLI OUTBREAK

An E.coli outbreak at Carbon Live Fire Mexican Grill at 300 W. 26th St. in Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, sickened at least sixty-five patrons, hospitalizing twenty.

The Chicago department of Public Health recommends anyone who ate at the restaurant in the period before July 1, 2016, and is suffering these symptoms to see a medical provider for testing and inform them of the possibility of E. coli infection.

Carbon Live Fire Mexican Grill Outbreak

The Chicago Department of Public Health discovered the Carbon Live Fire Mexican Grill outbreak after several cases of E. coli food poisoning were traced back to the restaurant.

According to Dr. Allison Bartlett of University of Chicago Medicine, this strain of E.coli is particularly virulent. In worst-case scenarios, patients can get progressively sick and suffer from kidney failure.

“Some infections are very mild, but others are severe or even life-threatening,” according to the CDC. “Around 5 percent to 10 percent of those who are diagnosed with STEC infection develop a potentially life-threatening complication known as hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).”

Symptoms of E. coli Food Poisoning

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) symptoms of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) infection include severe abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting. The diarrhea may become bloody and can lead to dehydration. There is usually little or no fever. The infection (and its symptoms) will vary from individual to individual, ranging from a mild to a life-threatening illness.

Complications of E. coli Food Poisoning

HUS – Complications of STEC infection may include Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), a serious and sometimes life-threatening medical condition that occurs in about 5%-10% of cases. HUS is characterized by anemia, low platelet count, and renal injury or failure. Blood transfusions and kidney dialysis may be required.

TTP – Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP) is characterized by anemia, low platelet count, and renal injury or failure. There may be Central Nervous System involvement and/or fever as well.
