Raw Farm Cheddar E. coli Outbreak

The outbreak includes at least 10 illnesses and four hospitalizations. One person has developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a form of kidney failure that is a complication of some E. coli infections.

Symptoms of an E. coli infection include abdominal cramps and diarrhea that can be bloody. These symptoms usually appear within one to three days of exposure. The patients in this outbreak first developed symptoms on dates ranging from October 18, 2023, to January 29, 2024.

Over-the-counter anti-diarrheal medications and antibiotics should not be given to patients with E. coli infections as they can increase the chance of developing HUS.
