How E.coli Affects The Body, And Where The Product Was Sold

The FDA reports that E.coli, otherwise known as E. coli O157:H7, can cause diarrhea. This also results in, as they state, bloody stools. Some individuals may simply get better over time after dealing with it, but others may not have the same experience.


E.coli, as reported, may cause Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, which is a kind of kidney failure. This potentially could also damage one's kidneys, or even cause the death of the person in question.

To identify if you've purchased the item, you can use the lot number. Lot numbers identified as contaminated are 3325-043 & 3341-501 and having expiration dates of 5/21/25 & 6/7/25. You can also see where they were sold here.

As this is a developing story, we will have more information when it becomes available.
