E Coli Lawsuits

E Coli food poisoning, which is usually caused by E. Coli O157:H7, can result from negligence during the manufacturing or preparation of food products. Common sources of infection have included ground beef, unpasteurized milk, raw fruits and vegatables and under cooked meat.

REVIEW AN E. COLI FOOD POISONING LAWSUIT: E. Coli lawyers review potential lawsuits for food poisoning which can be traced to a particular manufacturer, retailer, restaurant or food preparer. In most cases, food poisoning lawsuits are filed after a widespread e coli outbreak causes a large number of people to get sick.


OVERVIEW: E. Coli, also known as Escherichia Coli, is a common strain of bacteria found in the intestines of people and animals. Through most strains are harmless, E. Coli O157:H7 produces a harmful toxin that can cause serious and potentially fatal food poisoning for some people.

E COLI FOOD POISONING SYMPTOMS: Food poisoning associated with E. Coli usually starts with symptoms like abdominal cramps, severe diarrhea and vomiting. These E Coli symptoms could appear within the first few days after a contaminated food is eaten.

While most healthy adults suffer only mild illness, from which they are able to recover fully with five to ten days, more severe problems could develop for very young children, the elderly and those with a weak immune system. In some cases, kidneys and red blood cells may be damaged and it could lead to a condition known as Hemolytic-Urenia Syndrome (HUS).

Treatment is often recommended if symptoms persist for more than a few hours. Supportive care and close monitoring of renal function, platelets and hemoglobin is often required

E COLI OUTBREAKS: The U.S. Government has passed new laws to help reduce to risk of an E. Coli oubreak by ensuring more hygienic practices in meat processing plants and the handling of fresh produce, which are commonly responsible for widespread E. Coli food poisoning outbreaks.
