The recalled pet food may be contaminated with Escherichia coli O157 (E. coli) and there is risk of cross contamination and illness after handling the pet food.
E. coli O157 is a bacteria that can cause serious, sometimes life-threatening illness. Some people infected with E. coli O157 do not get sick at all, though they can still spread the infection to others. Common symptoms observed after infection include nausea, vomiting, headache, mild fever, severe stomach cramps, and watery or bloody diarrhea. Most symptoms end within five to ten days. Pregnant women, those with weakened immune systems, young children and older adults are most at risk for developing serious complications and might need hospitalization.
There is no real treatment for E. coli infections, other than monitoring the illness, providing comfort, and preventing dehydration. People should contact their health care provider if symptoms persist or worsen with time.
