EL DORADO COUNTY —
High Hill Ranch in El Dorado County issued a voluntary recall of some of the brands’ apple juice after local health officials suspected potential E. Coli contamination in juices purchased on or after Oct. 6, 2015 from the ranch.
The Sacramento County Department of Health and Human Services notified the El Dorado County Environmental Management and Public Health divisions of at least seven cases of E. Coli illnesses that stem from the unpasteurized apple juice, according to El Dorado County officials. One person was hospitalized but is expected to recover.
E. Coli illness symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and occasionally low-grade fever. Most people who get ill from the bacteria recover within five to seven days.
