E. Coli Recall

Ground Beef Recall
E. coli bacteria

1.8 million pounds of ground beef shipped to Massachusetts has been recalled due to suspicions it may have been tainted with E. coli. The products, produced by Wolverine Packing Co., were dated between March 31, 2014 and April 18, 2014 according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s food Safety an Inspection Service.

E. Coli Tainted Ground Beef Linked to 11 Cases

So far, 11 illnesses have been linked to the meat sold for restaurant use in four New England states. E. coli can cause severe stomach cramps and tenderness, bloody stools and nausea with vomiting. Some people, once infected, do not notice any of the symptoms and may spread the bacteria to others without noticing. Once the bacterium spreads to the intestines, the problems begin. The symptoms will oftentimes be accompanied with a high fever.

Oftentimes, and if left untreated for relatively short periods of time, E. coli can cause kidney failure and sometimes long-term disability or even death in some children and older adults.
