Investigations are ongoing to determine the source of contamination, and public health officials are examining if there is any evidence to link human illness to the contaminated milk.According to a news release from the Washington State Department of Agriculture, shiga toxin-producing E. coli infections may cause severe diarrhea, stomach cramps and bloody stool. Symptoms generally appear three to four days after exposure, but can take as long as nine days to appear.The infection sometimes causes hemolytic uremic syndrome, a serious disease in which red blood cells are destroyed and the kidneys fail. Infants, children, pregnant women, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems are especially at risk. by RTT Staff WriterFor comments and feedback: editorial@rttnews.com EDITOR'S PICKSTyco Int'l To Split Into Three Publicly Traded Companies Lennar Q3 Profit Falls, Yet Tops Estimates; Sees Increasing Demand - Update Netflix CEO Apologizes For Handling Of Business Split Announcement, Price Change UBS Raises Unauthorized Trading Loss Estimate To $2.3 Bln Research In Motion Results Miss Estimates Pier 1 Imports Q2 Profit Rises On Higher Sales, Margins Cisco Lowers Long-term Sales Outlook; Sees Earnings Growth MOST READRIM Q2 Profit Down; Now Sees FY12 Adj.
