Symptoms of an E. coli Infection
Symptoms of an E. coli infection usually develop within one to three days of exposure. They include abdominal cramps and diarrhea that can be bloody. Most clinical laboratories usually only test for E. coli O157:H7, so it may be necessary to request a specific test.
