E. coli bacteria What you need to know

TONGUE PHARYNX

E. coli are bacteria that reside in the bowel of many animals (cattle, pigs, sheep, poultry and humans). But there are some strains of E. coli, that when ingested can produce a harmful toxin.

ESOPHAGUS

E. coli produce Shiga toxins, one of the most potent toxins in existence known to cause full-blown haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS), a disease that causes bloody diarrhea, liver and kidney damage and in some cases, death.

1 2

E. coli-contaminated food is consumed.

E. coli is most dangerous to young children, elderly adults and those people with immune problems.

Carriers

Bacteria enters the digestive tract. Toxins enter the bloodstream and destroy red blood cells.

KIDNEYS (behind intestines)

3

Damaged red blood cells cannot travel through veins properly and get caught in small veins. This commonly occurs in the kidneys.

LIVER STOMACH

KIDNEY

INTESTINES

Properly functioning kidneys are needed to remove fluids and waste from the body

BEEF, and other meats: Most often in

ground meats. When meat is ground, E. coli can be distributed throughout. Bacteria is usually killed during high-temperature cooking processes.

DAMAGED RED BLOOD CELLS GLOMERULUS

VEGETABLES: Can become

contaminated with E. coli carried by chicken, sheep, cattle or pigs eating from the garden, or with water that has been contaminated by animal feces. Washing vegetables usually removes bacteria, but bacteria can grow into the vegetable. The bacteria will remain unless the vegetables are cooked at a temperature hot enough to kill them off.

WATER: Untreated water may be contaminated by animal feces.

Symptoms DNA

CLOGGED VEINS

CYTOPLASM

FLAGELLUM

The E. coli bacterium

Tiny filters in the kidney called glomeruli can get clogged and hinder kidney function. In severe cases, the kidney can be permanently damaged or death can occur.

4

It can take anywhere from 12 hours to 10 days for a person to become ill. • Fever • Vomiting • Stomach cramps • Diarrhea (may become bloody)

E. coli can survive for long periods of time on non-sterile surfaces such as countertops, cutting boards and vegetable skins. It takes only a small dose of them to wreak havoc on an immune system.

Spreading E. coli Poor hand washing and improper food handling can lead to the spread of E. coli. SUSAN BATSFORD, GRAPHICS EDITOR, TWITTER @SBATS1; /QMI AGENCY

Where’s Jimmy Hoffa? On Friday, authorities drilled through concrete and removed two samples of wet soil and clay in a Detroit-area neighborhood in the latest effort to find the remains of Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, who disappeared in 1975. There was no visible sign of human remains. Test results from the samples may be available next week. The latest investigation was launched after a man told police that he saw a body being buried under the driveway 35 years ago and “thinks it may have been Jimmy.”

1913 Born James Riddle Hoffa on Feb. 14, 1913, in Brazil, Indiana.

Federal investigators discovered hundreds of millions of dollars had been stolen from Teamsters’ largest pension fund.

Hoffa, then 62, was last seen at the Machus Red Fox restaurant in Detroit. He was supposedly meeting with a Detroit Mafia street enforcer and the chief of a Teamsters local in New Jersey, but Hoffa was the only one who showed. Both men denied any meeting being scheduled. Police found Hoffa’s car at the restaurant but no sign of him or any indication of what happened to him.

Organizer of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters union (IBT).

Resigned as Teamsters’ president as part of a pardon agreement with U.S. president Richard Nixon to facilitate his release later that year. Nixon blocked Hoffa from union activities until 1980, which Hoffa attempted to overturn to regain support.

Dec. 23, 1971 Released from prison; awarded $1.7M lump sum pension payment.

The FBI razed a horse barn in Michigan following what it called “a fairly credible lead.” Nothing was found.

Authorities removed floorboards from a Detroit home to look for traces of blood, as former Teamsters official Frank Sheeran claimed in a biography that he had shot Hoffa. Investigators ruled blood found in the house was not Hoffa’s.
