Once again the FDA and CDC are warning consumers to avoid Romaine Lettuce. Following a massive E. coli O157:H7 outbreak linked to 197 illnesses in more than 35 states earlier this year, resulting in many E. coli lawsuits for medical costs, lost wages, and past and future pain and suffering, a new outbreak o f a rare strain of E. coli, linked to 32 illnesses in 11 states with 13 hospitalizations and at least one HUS case are now being reported. The millions sought in Romaine lettuce E. coli lawsuits in 2018 will likely be just the tip of the iceberg as a new wave of Romaine lettuce E. coli lawsuits will likely be filed in 2019.

It can last for a week or two, with some people developing long-term post-infectious IBS, post-infectious Reactive Arthritis, or exacerbation of Crohn's disease or other gastrointestinal illness.

Listeria is a unique bacteria, also spread in fecal material, has a unique make-up (having to do with its protein internalin) that posses dangers other bacteria do not. It passes through the neonatal and blood brain barriers. Because it is able to do so, it causes miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women and encephalitis or meningitis. Listeria can be deadly in the elderly or very young. It is often not diagnosed properly because it usually requires a placental or CSF culture - neither are common medical procedures and are all too often done only after administration of antibiotics.

E. coli or STEC, short for Shiga Toxin-Producing Escheirichia, is most notable for the symptoms associated with larges amounts of blood in the stool. The E, coli bacteria sheds Shiga Toxin and can lead to anemia and then kidney failure - known as Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome in some people. The vast majority of cases of Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, or HUS, are usually children, and HUS lawsuits traditionally seek hundreds of thousands to a million or more dollars due to the possibility of long-term injuries that can follow a diagnosis of HUS - a potentially deadly side effect of E. coli poisoning.

Parasites are disgusting, and luckily relatively rare. But this is also why they are dangerous. Most people (including physicians) do not suspect a parasite when diagnosing gastrointestinal illness, and even if they do, a standard Ova -Parasite (or O/P) does not capture many of the common species. Cyclospora can only be detected if a specific Cyclospora screen is ordered. What are the signs of Cyclospora? In addition to nausea and diarrhea, significant weight loss and bloating and explosive gas are routine.

Almost nobody knows what norovirus is, and yet it sickens 19 to 21 million people annually, leads to between 50 and 75 thousand hospitalizations, and kills 500 to 1000 people every year. It is easily spread and infects a person once it enters the body though hand-food contamination - think eating pizza or french fries with your hands. It is accompanied by the violent onset of emesis (vomiting) and diarrhea, though it is much more brief in duration than most bacterial infections - often called the 24 or 48 hour flu.

Campylobacter resides most often in chicken, which is how it often gets into the human gastrointestinal tract.

Norovirus outbreaks often involve dozen or even hundreds of victims in a 24 hour period.
