Increased Verotoxigenic E. coli (VTEC) cases in the Ireland Midwest Region

4 weeks ago

Limerick, County Limerick, Ireland

Public health authorities are investigating an increase of cases of a potentially-deadly bacteria Verotoxigenic E. coli (VTEC) in the midwest region. More than 20 VTEC cases were notified in the region between July 31st-August 27th, including several hospitalizations according to Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) provisional data.

According to the news, multidisciplinary public health teams have managed and investigated outbreaks and cases in households and in rural settings, particularly on or near farms, and sites with access to a private well supply, and sources of infection are under investigation.

The VTEC strain produces a powerful toxin that can cause severe illness, particularly in children under five and the elderly. The infection can be passed from person to person, through consuming contaminated food or water or contact with infected animals or contamination in the environment. In addition to causing severe stomach pains and diarrhea, VTEC can cause a serious condition known as Haemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), which results in the breakdown of red blood cells and kidney failure. A small number of HUS cases have been confirmed.

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.

My box code is 04 JUL2023 BU0456 08 and I became horribly ill after eating it a couple of times. It took me a few times to figure out what was causing the nasty cramps, etc.

Ha it took me twice to figure it out myself but the taste of sulfur and marshmallows and the never ending green runs after eating a bowl both times isn’t a coincidence. The second time I REALLY fucked up and ate 2 huge bowls. I thought I was going to die. I was debating calling an ambulance. Almost slept on my toilet figured why get up just gonna have to come back in 10 minutes. I’m just starting to feel sort of normal again now. Pot helped with the nausea after I got it all out of me on the bowl. I will never touch that poison again. I don’t understand how the FDA is allowing this product to stay in shelves it’s truly baffling. I AM 100% CERTAIN I WAS POISONED BY THIS CEREAL *BEST IF USED BY MAY2023 BU 1607 06 A is what’s on the box
