I was thinking about to cook spaghetti sauce with ground beef, added some button mushrooms and basil for my supper, and I need to go buy those stuffs in grocery store.
A couple minute in my way headed to the closest grocery store in my neighborhood, I remembered that the local radio talked about recalled ground beef that suspected has been contaminated with the E.coli.
E.coli infection occurs in 10 states and there are about 190 cases. Thanks Lord, no one get killed.
So far, the ground beef from two companies have been recalled because laboratory testing of ground beef from these companies spotted the outbreak strain of E. coli O103.
This strain is acquired Shiga-toxin.
Shiga toxin-producing E. coli can cause a person get sick, usually for three to four days after intake the contaminated food.
The symptoms are watery diarrhea that often with:
- severe stomach cramps
- little or no fever
- and may lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).
