    There are obviously more people than those cases because I reported it to my local health department after I saw it a month later on the news. I was told the only cases the CDC gets a report of are those who were tested positive for e coli. I called both my doctor and Jimmy Johns on January 10th (to let them know something i ate there had made me sick and so that they would investigate so other would not get sick) when I got sick and my Doctor treated it like the stomach flu even after I told him this was not the flu! I did not end up in the ER
    dehydrated like others because I stayed hydrated but it was still a painful miserable week of feeling sick. I knew I had food poisoning and there was proof a month later on the news.
