E. Coli Food Poisoning Symptoms

E. coli bacteria inhabits the intestinal tracts of humans and other warm-blooded animals. More than 700 serotypes of E. coli are known to exist, making it the largest collective group of bacterial germs on Earth. Symptoms of E. coli poisoning typically include:

  • abdominal pain
  • severe cramps
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea

In most people, E. coli illness lasts about one week and resolves without any serious complications. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), E. coli O157:H7 causes about 73,000 illnesses, 2,000 hospitalizations, and 60 deaths annually in the U.S. In the most severe cases, E. coli poisoning can lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), conditions that have the potential to cause kidney failure, brain damage, organ failure, and death.
