E. coli O157:H7 Infections Linked to Organic Spinach and Spring Mix Blend

Thirty-three persons across five states were infected with Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7 in a food poisoning outbreak linked to pre-packaged leafy greens produced by State Garden of Chelsea, Massachusetts. The packaged greens were sold in Wegmans Food Markets. Illness onset dates ranged from October 18, 2012 to November 12, 2012.

The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that approximately 46 % of the outbreaks victims required hospitalization, and two of those sickened developed a type of kidney failure known as hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).

E. coli Food Poisoning Symptoms

Symptoms of E. coli infection may include severe abdominal cramps, fever, and watery diarrhea. The diarrhea may become bloody and can lead to dehydration. Severe infections can cause kidney failure. The very young, elderly, and immunocompromised are at greatest risk for experiencing complications due to E. coli infection.

A Stool Culture May Confirm E. coli Food Poisoning

E. coli O157:H7 food poisoning can be fatal. If you suspect that you have contracted E. coli or are experiencing food poisoning symptoms, contact your healthcare professional. He or she can order a stool culture to confirm E. coli infection.

A stool culture can also help link your illness to a specific outbreak and support a food poisoning lawsuit should you wish to seek compensation for your injuries.
