Ground Beef Recalled After E. Coli Outbreak

FRIDAY, Sept. 21, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- More than 132,000 pounds of ground beef have been recalled by a Colorado company following a suspected outbreak where one person was killed and 17 were sickened by Escherichia coli after eating the meat.

Cargill Meat Solutions said in a statement yesterday that all of the affected products have been removed from supermarket shelves, and food safety teams are checking the Fort Morgan facility where the meat was packaged "to ensure we continue to deliver safe food."

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the meat was produced and packaged at that facility on June 21 and shipped to stores all over the country, the Associated Press reported. The products included 3-, 10-, and 20-pound packages of ground beef and sold under the brands Our Certified, Excel, Sterling Silver, Certified, and Fire River Farms. All had a use or freeze by date of July 11.

Regulators warned that people should also check for the products in their freezers. All affected products should be thrown away or returned to the store where they were purchased, they added.
