How to protect yourself from HUS & E. coli
Free E. Coli Food Poisoning Case Evaluation: If you or a loved one has been the victim of poisoning and subsequently developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, you should contact our law firm immediately. You may be entitled to compensation by filing a lawsuit and we can help.
What’s the problem?
Specific preventative measures for treating hemolytic uremic syndrome are the same as protecting yourself from E. coli infection:
- Wash hands, utensils, and food surfaces thoroughly and often.
- Keep raw foods separate from ready-to-eat foods.
- Defrost raw meat in your microwave or refrigerator, and do not leave meat on the counter to thaw.
- Cook ground beef to at least 160 F – hamburgers should always be well-done.
- Wash fruits and vegetable under running water.
- Avoid pasteurized milk, juice, and cider.
- Avoid swimming in water potentially contaminated with feces.
Make sure that everyone in your family washes his or her hands after using the toilet or changing diapers and before eating. In child care facilities, diapers shouldn’t be changed or disposed of in the same room where food is being prepared or eaten.
