We should be concerned about this outbreak see hereunder:
The cause of the E. coli outbreak in Germany remains a mystery. The outbreak is the deadliest in modern history with at least two-dozens deaths and more than 2,400 people sickened. Eleven other European nations and the United States also report E. coli cases and say most of the victims had visited Germany.
But some health officials in the United States say it may be just a matter of time before a similar E.coli outbreak happens in the United States.

International medical researchers are racing to find a cause of the world's deadliest E. coli outbreak that began in Germany May 2. Experts have been unable to pinpoint the source of a rare super toxic strain of E. coli bacteria that has killed dozens and sickened thousands. At least four people in America who visited Germany became sick.

E. coli and how it is transmitted
E. coli is an abbreviation for Escherichia, which is a large and diverse group of bacteria. Most strains are harmless, others can cause illness. Symptoms include stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. The major source is cattle, but other animals, foods and liquids may spread contamination to people.
• Shiga toxin-producing E. coli

This is a dangerous form of E. coli known by the acronym STEC. The best known strain of this STEC (also called 0157) was identified in 1982. Transmission and symptoms are similar to the most common form of E. coli.
• EHEC

A very serious infection is enterohaemorrhagic E. coli known by the acronym EHEC. It produces toxins, known as verotoxins or Shiga-like toxins. It may lead to life threatening diseases such as hemolytic uremic syndrome, or HUS.
• HUS

Scientists believe this is responsible for the European outbreak, originating from a potentially life threatening strain of STEC (0104). HUS afflicts the kidneys, blood and central nervous system.
