In brief: Washing and cooking

To prevent e. Coli infections, one needs to wash thoroughly all fruits and vegetables, which will lower but not eliminate the risk, and thoroughly cook all meat products, especially ground beef.
Proper cleaning of all food preparation areas will also be important in preventing the infection.
