Escherichia_Coli One of the simple joys in life is pulling up to a fast-food drive-through and savoring a burger and fries combo. Unfortunately, in addition to feeling guilty about eating unhealthy food, now you have to worry about food poisoning too. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that it had received nearly 100 reports of foodborne illness related to an outbreak caused by a dangerous strain of Escherichia coli, referred to as E. coli O157:H7. The outbreak, which has been linked to the romaine lettuce in Wendy’s sandwiches, has already ravaged six states, including New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, and Indiana. Health officials warned that the outbreak might have already spread beyond the above states.

When fast food chains like Wendy’s improperly store and prepare food, it can have catastrophic health consequences for innocent consumers. As this devastating saga continues to unfold, the total number of victims is expected to reach 200 in the oncoming days. At least 43 of the known victims have been hospitalized due to severe complications. E. coli poisoning is particularly harmful to those with compromised immune systems, infants, young children, and the elderly. These groups have a higher risk of developing hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a serious condition that can lead to kidney failure and even death. It is hardly surprising that outbreak victims have already started filing claims against Wendy’s fast-food chain. If you developed an E. coli infection after eating tainted Wendy’s food, there has never been a better time to consult with a highly practiced personal injury attorney.

Diagnosis and Treatment of E. Coli Infections

Woman in Pain After eating Wendy’s tainted food, you can expect symptoms of E. coli to appear within 3 to 5 days. Symptoms commonly include fever, fatigue, diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, and stomach cramps. While it typically takes about a week to recover from E. coli poisoning, victims suffering from more severe strains often require close medical supervision. You can help yourself recover faster by getting lots of sleep and drinking plenty of water. Antibiotics are not usually prescribed for STEC 0157 because they can make your symptoms worse and increase the risk of developing hemolytic uremic syndrome. It is also crucial to avoid anti-diarrhea medicines, such as Pepto-Bismol and Imodium, because these drugs will keep the bacteria in your body longer.

Our seasoned food poisoning attorneys urge you to seek professional treatment if you experience bloody diarrhea or urine, seizures, or heart palpitations. Both Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) and non-0157 STEC E. coli infections can be diagnosed by having your stool tested in a hospital laboratory. A doctor may also order a urine test, blood test, or kidney biopsy to determine whether you are suffering from hemolytic uremic syndrome. Treatment for HUS requires close medical supervision with intravenous (IV) fluids to keep the victim hydrated, medications to bring down their elevated blood pressure, and dialysis to clean the blood while the kidneys heal. Fortunately, with proper medical care, most patients can make a full recovery.
