In brief: Yes, sometimes

The bad "e. Coli" from food poisoning at first causes intestinal symptoms such as diarrhea.
If it goes on to damage the blood and the kidneys, more organs get affected, and skin rashes looking like tiny blood spots or like bruises can appear. This second, serious stage of the illness is called hemolytic uremic syndrome.
