Noted food safety lawyer Fred Pritzker, who has litigated many E. coli cases against dairies, food producers, and grocery stores, said, “While it’s unusual to have serious outbreaks caused by pasteurized dairy products, it does happen. We hope that now that products have been likely linked to the outbreak, no more illnesses will be diagnosed.”

PCC Market has also recalled some deli items that were made with the Pure Eire yogurt. If you have purchased any of these products, do not eat them. You can discard them in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the store where you purchased them.

Symptoms of an E. coli O157:H7 infection include a mild fever if one is present, possible nausea and vomiting, painful and severe abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that is often bloody or watery. Symptoms of HUS include little urine output, lethargy, easy bruising, and pale skin. These conditions are serious and may be life-threatening. If you or anyone you know is experiencing these symptoms after eating these recalled products, see your doctor. You may be part of this outbreak.
