Outbreak of E.coli O157:H7 infections linked to Leafy Greens
December 22, 2020 8:30 PM
The CDC and state and local partners investigated a multistate outbreak of E. coli infections linked to leafy greens. As of December 22, 2020, this outbreak is over. 40 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 were reported from 19 states. 20 people were hospitalized, and 4 developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a type of kidney failure. No deaths were reported.
Epidemiologic and traceback evidence showed that leafy greens were the likely source of this outbreak. Investigators were unable to identify a specific type or brand of leafy greens because people in this outbreak reported eating a variety of leafy greens and because different leafy greens are often grown, harvested, and processed together.
People usually get sick from Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) 2 to 8 days (average of 3 to 4 days) after swallowing the germ. Symptoms often include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting. Some people may have a fever, which usually is not very high (less than 101˚F/38.5˚C).

“Feb. 27th 2021, I visited this location. I don't usually eat here, but it was something different and it was close. I had the Jalapeno Bacon Ranch Chicken Wrap and a side of curly fries. No sooner did I finish my meal I had to vomit. I also noticed I was extremely gassy. A few hours later, you guess... ed it, DIARRHEA. This and the gas lasted until that Monday. I am unsure why this happened. Seemed as if the chicken was cooked thoroughly. I can attest I won't be eating anything. I should have known better, seeing as there are never any cars lined up for food, or in the car park for this restaraunt. I will gladly drive the extra ten minutes to acquire fast food. ”
