What is E. coli?
Shiga-toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) is a dangerous strain of E. coli that produces a powerful toxin. People who are infected with STEC can develop symptoms within 1 to 10 days.
The symptoms may include diarrhea (which may be bloody), severe stomach cramps, vomiting, and sometimes other complications. Children are particularly vulnerable to a life-threatening type of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS).
