This is how an EHEC disease manifests itself

According to the current state of science, sufficient heating ensures inactivation of the pathogen, it says in the communication.

According to the Robert Koch Institute, an EHEC disease usually manifests itself within a week of infection diarrhea and abdominal cramps. Infants, young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems in particular can develop more severe disease courses. Acute kidney failure can rarely occur.

If you have severe symptoms, consult a doctor

Individuals who have eaten the recalled lamb chops and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical attention. There they should indicate a possible EHEC infection.
