Ground Beef Recalled for E. Coli Contamination

More than 132,000 pounds of ground beef has been recalled by Cargill Meat Solutions for E. coli contamination. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 18 people have gotten sick from E. coli illness linked to the ground beef, and one of them died from the illness.

The affected meat was produced on June 21, and the package should have the USDA inspection mark, which says “EST. 86R.” The USDA is urging anyone with the meat in their refrigerators or freezers to dispose of it or return it to the store where it was purchased. The meat was sold in Safeway, Meijer, Sam’s Club and Target stores in the U.S.

What is E. Coli Illness?

Symptoms of E. coli illness can start between one and 10 days after consuming contaminated food, according to the CDC. Those symptoms can include diarrhea, vomiting and fever, and usually last five to seven days.

“An E. coli outbreak is very serious, and this one has already led to illnesses and a death. Please inspect your freezers and be sure to get these contaminated products out of your home,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
