Over 100,000 Pounds of Ground Beef Recalled After E.Coli Death
Cargill Meats is recalling over 100,000 pounds of ground beef after 1 person died and 17 were sickened due to E.coli contamination.
Cargill Meat Solutions is recalling approximately 132,606 pounds of ground beef products Escherichia coli, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The ground beef is thought to be responsible for 1 death, and 17 cases of illness so far.
The recalled beef was produced and packaged on June 21, 2018. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 86R” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The FSIS is concerned that consumers may still have some of the beef in freezers, and may use it and become ill.
Symptoms of E. coli begin between one and 10 days after consuming contaminated food or drink, but most people get sick three to four days after exposure, the CDC says.
