The recalled fresh ground beef was sold at New Seasons Stores in North Lombard, North Interstate and Cedar Hills. It includes products with fat contents of 5%, 10% and 20% purchased between Oct. 19 and Oct. 23, according to information from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).
E. coli is found in the intestines of warm-blooded animals. It causes illness when food contaminated with microscopic amounts of fecal matter containing it is ingested. Symptoms of an infection usually develop within three days and include abdominal cramping and diarrhea that can be bloody.
The serotype associated with this outbreak, E. coli O157: H7, produces a kind of poison called a Shiga toxin which causes a more severe illness than other E. coli strains. A life-threatening complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a form of kidney failure can develop from these illnesses. Teenagers and young children with E. coli infections are at heightened risk of developing HUS.
