According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, E. coli infections typically occur three to four days after consuming the germ. Severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody) and vomiting can result after five to seven days. In severe cases, patients may get hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.
