Food Safety Tip

E.coli is a bacteria that is found in intestines and isn’t a problem there. It is a major problem when it is on our plate. Symptoms include diarrhea and fever. More severe cases can lead to bloody diarrhea, dehydration, or kidney failure. It takes anywhere from 1–8 days before symptoms arise in the victim.

E.coli can be found in beef contaminated with faeces during slaughter or during the production process. During preparation time, it can spread mainly by undercooked ground beef. Other sources include unpasteurised milk and apple cider, alfalfa sprouts, and contaminated water.
