Hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremia syndrome caused by Escherichia coli in people consuming undercooked beef and unpasteurised milk



Hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremia syndrome caused by Escherichia coli in people consuming undercooked beef and unpasteurised milk



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 193(11): 1360-1361



The dangers of food poisoning from E. coli serotype O157:H7 are described. An outbreak of haemorrhagic diarrhoea in Wisconsin affecting 52 persons attending a buffet was caused by this serotype. Previous outbreaks of O157:H7 E.coli poisoning have been traced to undercooked meat. Other reports have described outbreaks of diarrhoea following consumption of unpasteurised milk, from which E. coli O157:H7 was isolated. The serotype has been isolated from beef, pork and lamb.
