The FDA has received 16 reports of illnesses from E. coli O157 H:7 in New York. The infection may cause a diarrheal illness, frequently accompanied with bloody stools. The symptoms emerge between three to nine days after exposure.
In some cases, patients may develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), which can be fatal. The aged and young children are more likely to develop HUS.
The FDA has asked consumers to discard the products from their home and contact the company for a full refund.
