People typically get sick three to four days after eating food contaminated with the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli bacteria.

An outbreak of infections associated with a common type of bacteria found in foods, the environment and in the gastrointestinal tract of people and animals, has sicken 17 people in seven states, including two in CT.

However, CDC said Tuesday that it was not recommending consumers avoid any particular food and that restaurants and retailers were not advised to avoid serving or selling any particular food.

New Jersey has the largest share of people infected, with six cases reported in the state.

States affected are New Jersey (6 cases), Idaho (4 cases), CT (2 cases), Pennsylvania (2 cases), Missouri (1 case), Washington (1 case) and OH (1 case). However, the CDC has no clue from where the E. Coli bacteria has been contracted by the patient in OH, as no restaurant, food, or grocery store were discovered as possible sources for the E. Coli infection.

Six people have been hospitalized, with one developing hemolytic uremic syndrome, a kidney condition.

The suspected cause for the late 2017 outbreak was believed to be leafy greens. Symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting. They could have eaten at several restaurants, at home or eaten food purchased at a supermarket.

The CDC said that state and local public health officials are in the process of interviewing those who have E. coli related illness to determine what they ate and what other exposures they may have encountered in the week before their illness started.

Cook meats thoroughly to kill harmful germs. Cook ground beef and pork to at least 160 degrees F. Use a food thermometer to check the temperature of the meat.

Don't cross-contaminate food preparation areas.

Avoid raw milk, other unpasteurized dairy products, and unpasteurized juices.
