    Default E. coli infection with a Shiga toxin-producing strain

    Does "E. coli infection with a Shiga toxin-producing strain " mean "E. coli infection that caused by a Shiga toxin-producing strain of E. coli"?


    Context:

    E. coli infection with a Shiga toxin-producing strain ("hamburger disease") has been the subject of several recalls of contaminated beef in Canada and the United States over the past few years. E. coli can be found in undercooked ground beef, unpasteurized (raw) dairy products and contaminated fruits and vegetables, particularly alfalfa sprouts. Symptoms include cramps and vomiting, with or without bloody diarrhea, and can lead to kidney failure and be life threatening. This is why it is important to cook hamburger meat thoroughly, wash fruits and vegetables, avoid unpasteurized dairy products, especially for children, and wash one's hands after handling raw meat. According to Dr. Lapeyraque, these precautions have greatly reduced the incidence of E. coli infection in Quebec.
