E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure. The very young, seniors, and people with weak immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a physician.
