E Coli Bacteriam from How Stuff Works

Raw Milk in California is another cause for E-coli concern recently.  Federal law prohibits the sale of raw milk across state lines but does allow states to regulate its sale within their borders. California permits the retail sale of unpasteurized milk from only two licensed facilities. This case is just in California.

There is a case in St. Louis area that source of the e-coli is unknown. The latest case brought to 33 the number of confirmed E. coli infections attributed to the outbreak in that area, said Jacqueline Lapine, spokeswoman for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The CDC is now investigating to find the cause of this outbreak.

Symptoms of E-Coli may include:

  • Abdonimal Pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Fatigue

If you think you have been infected with e-coli be sure to visit your doctor immediately.
