About E. coli enteritis:
E. Coli 0157:H7 poisoning is a serious and potentially deadly illness, typically transmitted using the faecal-mouth route by eating or drinking foods or beverages contaminated with E. Coli O157:H7, eating unpasteurised (i.e., raw) milk and (raw) milk products and untreated water.

Common symptoms of E. Coli 0157:H7 poisoning include severe stomach cramps, diarrhoea (often bloody), vomiting, nausea and headache. People particularly at risk for serious E. coli illness and complications are the very young, the elderly or those with compromised immune systems.
