https://foodpoisoningbulletin.com/2013/reports-of-foodborne-illness-decline-by-40/ Excerpt: "The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has released a new review of foodborne illness outbreaks. They found that from 2001 to 2010, the latest period for which data is available, outbreaks related to E. coli, Salmonella, and other pathogens decreased by more than 40%. This may be because of better food safety practices, including the adoption of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) programs in the meat, poultry, and seafood industries, as specified by the government. But the agency warns that incomplete reporting by public health agencies stretched and overworked by budget cuts may have influenced the data. CSPI food safety director Caroline Smith DeWaal said, “despite progress made by the industry and by food safety regulators, contaminated food is still causing too many illnesses, visits to the emergency room, and deaths. Yet state and local health departments and federal food safety programs always seem to be on the chopping block. Those financial pressures not only threaten the progress we’ve made on food safety, but threaten our very understanding of which foods and which pathogens are making people sick.”

Their broccoli & tomato quiche. As I write this, it was yesterday. The only intake that was different from my partner. Post pandemic, we're careful about handling, sanitising etc. 100% it was the quiche. Lower abdominal cramps 8hrs after ingestion. SEVERE, doubled up. Emptied out 4 times... with cramping over 2 hours until it was just brown water. 'Dire' diarrhea. Subsequently short-slept. Weary the following day. I feel like the remaining half of this quiche should go for testing, the store reprimanded & fined, and I should have ALDI pay me at least a modern full days wage (circa £200) compensation, and a complimentary voucher, though I think this is just a reporting hub that won't yield a legit actioned result for the consumer. Following this report, and in an ideal world, ALDI's remaining batch of quiches would be immediately removed from that store. Imagine the consequences of an ill/elderly/infirm consumer suffering this poisoning. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps
The McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) and Huntley Community School District 158 announced the investigation of a recent outbreak of Shiga Toxin-Producing E. coli (STEC) at Huntley High School. There have been six confirmed cases of STEC, all involving students. The initial case was detected on... Sunday, September 17. To date, the origin of the illnesses is unknown. The MCDH is overseeing the situation for potential cases; no other STEC cases are known in McHenry County outside of this outbreak.
Officials from Huntley High School are collaborating with the MCDH, continuing their examination of possible exposures both inside and outside the school, since the source of the outbreak remains unidentified. Due to E. coli's highly contagious characteristics, students are urged to wash their hands regularly. The school has also adopted preemptive steps to maintain a secure environment, such as displaying handwashing signs around the school and installing hand sanitizer stations in every classroom and communal area.
To prevent and stop the spread of infection, the MCDH recommends washing hands with soap and water when preparing and eating food, having contact with animals or their environment, and after bathroom use or changing a diaper; avoiding swallowing water from ponds, lakes, and untreated swimming pools; and washing and cooking foods properly and avoid unpasteurized (raw) dairy products and juices. Those infected should not handle, prepare, or cook food for others until 48 hours after symptoms have resolved.
In case you are experiencing E. coli symptoms such as watery diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting; stomach cramps; and mild fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

Ct jelly powder donuts. I got them from Walmart. They’re delicious but every time I eat one I get intense stomach cramps, sweating, nausea. I bought one box. I ate 3 donuts 3 different times, and each time I felt sick. Only reason I kept eating them... was because I didn’t think it was the reason I kept getting sick. But my mom ate one and she got sick too. Then I knew. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps, Sweating
