Over 58K Pounds of Ground Beef Recalled in Multiple States
If you’ve purchased ground beef, then don’t miss this recall! The FDA has warned that some ground beef distributed recently may have been in contact with E. Coli. This investigation is still going on, so they may find more in more areas. However, right now this covers three states in the United States.
What is a Recall?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States are the departments responsible for investigating potential problems with food safety. Of course, from their investigations, they may issue warnings to the public. In other words, a Recall by the FDA or CDC means that the product in question is not safe for the specified reason. Additionally, guidelines and instructions are given for each recall, based on the specific threat at hand. For example, they may warn that consumers should not consume the product. Or, they may suggest that the company responsible is willing to refund the purchase price.
Why is There a Recall?
The FDA Food Safety and Inspection Services discovered the E Coli contamination in a routine test. The meat they tested was positive for E.coli.
What is E. Coli?
Escherichia coli, also known as E. coli, is a type of bacteria that is commonly found in the intestines of humans and animals. While most strains of E. coli are harmless, some strains can cause illness. These illnesses can range from mild to severe and may include symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever. In some cases, E. coli infections can lead to more serious complications, such as kidney failure. E. coli can be spread through contaminated food or water, or through contact with infected animals or people. Proper hygiene practices, such as frequent hand washing and cooking meat to proper temperatures, can help prevent the spread of E. coli.
