Article Excerpts about Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia Coli Infection

Several different types of harmful, or pathogenic, E. coli can cause diarrheal disease. A particularly dangerous type is referred to as enterohemorrhagic E. coli, or EHEC. In 1982, scientists identified the first such strain in the United States. Since then, EHEC strains have been associated with foodborne outbreaks traced to undercooked hamburgers, unpasteurized apple juice or cider, salad, salami, and unpasteurized milk. Recent outbreaks have also been traced to contaminated well water and improperly disinfected swimming pools. (Source: excerpt from Foodborne Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
