In brief: Wash your hands

Handwashing after using the bathroom and before handling food is the major way to prevent not only e coli and food borne illness in general.
Next, thoroughly cooking meats kills most bacteria. Washing food preparation areas with bactericidal soap or mild bleach is also important. You should clean sponges in your dishwasher and dish towels in the clothes washing machine, regularly, using hot water.

In brief: Wash hands/ heat mea

Infection is related to exposure to contaminated food or water, and is more common in regions lacking adequate sanitation and clean water. Outbreaks of enterohemorrhagic escherichia coli (ehec) infection may occur in institutions and in relation to contaminated sources of food, such as undercooked beef, or salads and fruit.
