Each week seems to see a new food recall; now there is a walnut products recall in place due to an outbreak of E. coli illness. You can see a list of brands and products that contain the E. coli bacteria, if you believe that you have any of the infected items, then please stop eating them immediately.
This outbreak has seen 13 people coming forward with their illness due to an E. coli fears. Nine of these were sent to hospital for treatment, while two developed a more serious case of the illness called haemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). It comes as no surprise that this issue is being taken seriously, so you really need to study the chart that we have for you below, which was thanks to CBC News.
If HUS is left untreated, then it could result in kidney failure, something that you do not expect to get just by eating walnuts. Thankfully all cases were treated in time, and now all are expected to make a full recovery — but it is hard to understand what would have happened if they were not seen by medical staff.
We can see three brands in all, these are as follows: Amira, Merit Selection and Tia. The recall is not only for raw Shelled Walnuts, but also Mistral Mix and Salad booster. If you have eaten any of these products and are now suffering from abdominal pain as well as bloody diarrhea, then we advise you to visit your doctor or head to hospital.
