About E. coli enteritis:
Food contaminated with Escherichia coli may not look or smell spoiled but consumption of food contaminated with these bacteria may cause serious, long-lasting and potentially life-threatening illnesses. E. coli poisoning is typically transmitted using the fecal-mouth route by eating or drinking foods or beverages contaminated with E. coli, eating unpasteurized (i.e., raw) milk and (raw) milk products and untreated water. Common symptoms of E. coli poisoning include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting, nausea and headache.
