Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) can cause severe foodborne disease. EHEC is the primary cause of hemorrhagic colitis. This infection can also lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome. It is transmitted to humans primarily through consumption of contaminated foods, such as raw or undercooked ground meat products and raw milk. Its significance as a public health problem was recognized in 1982, following an outbreak in the United States of America. EHEC produces toxins, known as verotoxins or Shiga-like toxins because of their similarity to the toxins produced by Shigella dysenteriae.
