The product, a blend of organic spinach and spring mix, has been associated with 16 reported illnesses in New York State from E.coli O157 H:7, which may cause a diarrheal illness, often with bloody stools. The symptoms usually appear about three days after exposure, but can range from one to nine days. Although most people recover without specific treatment in five to 10 days, 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. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death. If you have consumed Wegmans Organic Spinach & Spring Mix and have experienced any symptoms such as diarrhea or abdominal cramps, please contact your health care provider.
