Escherichia coli 0157:H7

Escherichia coli 0157:H7

Escherichia coli O157:H7 is a common cause of foodborne illness. Infection often leads to bloody diarrhea, and occasionally to kidney failure. Most illness has been associated with eating undercooked, contaminated ground beef. Person-to-person contact in families and child care centers is also an important mode of transmission. Infection can also occur after drinking raw milk and after swimming in or drinking sewage-contaminated water.


Transmission is via the fecal-oral route, and most illness has been through the distribution of contaminated raw leafy green vegetables, undercooked meat, and raw milk. Swimming in or drinking sewage-contaminated water can also cause infection. Bacteria in diarrheal stools of infected persons can be passed from one person to another if hygiene or handwashing habits are inadequate.


Symptoms of A. baumannii infections are often indistinguishable from other opportunistic infections caused by other opportunistic bacteria – including Klebsiella pneumoniae and Streptococcus pneumoniae. These include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Malaise
  • Loss of appetite
  • Dehydration
