The food poisoning lawyers at the Law Firm will continue to track this recall. So far, the link between E.Coli from salads and sandwiches is mostly epidemiological, which means that the common denominator between the twenty-six people that got sick with E.Coli from Salads and Sandwiches is pre-cooked ham and chicken manufactured by Glass Onion Catering and contained in the above-listed products. Sometimes, the link between a recalled product and outbreak of food poisoning can be established using the DNA of the pathogen, in this case E.Coli from salads and sandwiches. In this case, however, the link is epidemiological.
E. coli O157:H7 causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms typically associate with E.Coli. If you or a loved one is experiencing these symptoms, go to the doctor or hospital immediately and ask for blood work to confirm the source of your illness.
