Only a doctor can make a diagnosis of an E. coli infection. If you have eaten ground beef products and have become sick, urgent medical attention is highly recommended. Also, early medical treatment can greatly reduce the risk for long-term complications. Be sure to ask your doctor for an Ecoli O103 stool test if you think you are sick in this outbreak. It is best not to panic, but it is a good idea to monitor your health and symptoms in the days after exposure.
The Kentucky Department of Public Health has issued an alert stating there is a sudden increase in E. Coli cases, and it is linked to fast food. The alert stated the E. Coli 0103 cases were reported Mar. 5-25 with children and teenagers. The health department has confirmed 19 cases, and most are in central Kentucky. Fayette County is one of the counties where cases are being reported. The health department says those affected have had an “extensive exposure to fast food.” The outbreak isn’t limited to young people. Acute diarrhea is a symptom of E. Coli 0103. You are asked to seek medical attention and if you believe you may have E. Coli.
As of now, a total of 109 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O103 have been reported from six states.
Seventeen people have been hospitalized. No cases of hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure, have been reported. No deaths have been reported.
Ground beef products have been linked as the possible source of contamination.
"Candess & Jory were extremely valuable resources for me when I contracted food poisoning. They guided me through every step of the legal process from start to finish, always willing to answer questions and be fully transparent. They were able to secure a settlement for me, but what I valued more was how truly concerned they were about my health and well-being beyond my case. I would gladly recommend Candess & Jory to anyone looking for attorneys who will fight on their behalf and really care about their clients."JOE, FORMER CLIENT
"I cannot recommend Jory Lange highly enough. When my father died, Jory was there and got an unbelievably great settlement (one of the highest settlements in America for for this type of case). I say this not only as a grateful client, but as a trial lawyer myself concentrating in personal injury with over 25 years experience. Jory has the knowledge, the skills, and the ability to handle big personal injury cases and my family and I are exceedingly pleased with the results and the justice that he obtained through very hard work for us. "JOEL, FORMER CLIENT
* The onset of symptoms of an E. coli infection occur between 2 to 10 days. * Symptoms of an E. coli infection include:
* In some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the ill person requires hospitalization. * E. coli infections can spread to or have severe complications on other body systems and into the bloodstream, central nervous system, and kidneys. * Potential long-term complications of E. coli infections include Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), a potentially fatal kidney disease.
As the investigation continues, more cases and states are likely to be linked to the outbreak. Because it typically takes 2 to 4 weeks for illnesses to be linked to an outbreak, there are likely more illnesses out there.
