The US Department of Agriculture announced a recall of more than 60,000 pounds of beef potentially contaminated with E. coli last week. The Kansas-based National Beef Packing Company produced the beef, which was then shipped to supermarket chains in the southeastern US such as Kroger, Publix, and Winn-Dixie Stores. The Ohio Department of Agriculture discovered the contamination during a routine microbial test. E. coli contamination can occur when fecal matter comes in contact with food, causing diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and kidney failure.
