Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) infection
Enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) infection is typically contracted through consumption of contaminated food or contact with contaminated water, animal feces or infected animals. EHEC is also referred to as verocytotoxin producing E. coli (VTEC) or Shiga toxin producing E. coli (STEC). The serotype O157:H7 is first associated with human disease after a multistate outbreak in the United States in 1982 involving contaminated hamburgers. The symptoms of EHEC infection range from mild diarrhea to hemorrhagic colitis and can progress to a severe cases called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).
