E. Coli infections do not always cause symptoms. However, if this is the case, it is usually diarrhea and stomach cramps.
As explained by SELF the common symptoms of E. coli infection include diarrhea (which can be bloody) pain and cramping, nausea and vomiting. Although these are not exactly comfortable, most healthy adults can get along well with them and recover within a week or so.
In rare cases, E. coli infections can be severe and lead to complications such as hemolytic uremic syndrome which can lead to kidney failure and even death. People who are most likely to develop such problems are young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
It is therefore important, as always, to cultivate and handle safe eating habits . And if you develop symptoms of E. coli infection after eating cauliflower or other potentially contaminated products, it is important that you get in touch with your doctor to report your symptoms and seek the necessary treatment to take.
