Why is this important?

Certain strains of E. coli bacteria can cause disease by making a toxin called Shiga toxin. The most commonly identified toxin-producing strain is E. coli O157:H7. The symptoms of E. coli infections vary for each person but often include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting. Most people get better within 5-7 days. Some infections are very mild, but others are severe or even life-threatening. E. coli live in the guts of ruminant animals, including cattle, goats, sheep, deer, and elk. Major routes of transmission include consumption of contaminated food, consumption of unpasteurized (raw) milk, consumption of water that has not been disinfected, contact with cattle, or contact with the feces of infected people. An estimated 265,000 Shiga toxin-producing E. Coli infections occur each year in the United States.
