E. coli O157:H7 produces a poison called Shiga toxin which can cause serious illness. Symptoms of an infection include abdominal cramps and diarrhea that is often bloody. About 10 percent of children and young people who get these infections are at risk for a complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a form of kidney failure.

Symptoms of an E. coli infection usually develop one to three days after the contaminated food is eaten. Anyone who ate these salads and developed these symptoms should see a doctor right away.
