Typically, most healthy adults can recover completely within a week from this infection, however, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. This condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even in some instances death. Other symptoms of E. coli include bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps, dehydration, and in more severe cases, kidney failure, as we noted above. This bacteria is nothing to play around with, so if you are one of the unlucky ones to have eaten any of these products, please notify your physician immediately. They are offering full refunds on this product, so if you just so happened to be one of the unfortunate buyers, return it to where you bought it from. You also can just throw it away, but should be sure to handle it properly so as not to contaminate anything else!
The three types of cheeses are all soft raw milk cheeses that come in various sized pieces. These products do not have any labels or codes on them. The cow and sheep milk cheeses are all wrapped in chestnut leaves, and the goat cheese is wrapped in grape leaves and all are secured with twine. The cheeses may have an outer wrapping of waxed paper.
The products being recalled have been identified as a possible source of E. coli infections currently under investigation.
