E. coli Causes Beef Recall

Beef is recalled in eight states after two die from E. coli on the East Coast.

On Monday, a voluntary recall was issued for 546,000 pounds of ground beef possibly contaminated with E. coli bacteria. Representatives from New York-based slaughterhouse Fairbank Farms announced they will recall all the ground beef produced in the factory between September 14 and September 16, after the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service identified a cluster of E. coli illness in Connecticut, Maine, and Massachusetts. The recall applies to the eight states that distribute Fairbank Farms beef, but the company said some distributors might have shipped tainted meat to other states. Currently, health officials in both New York and New Hampshire confirmed E. coli related deaths.
