A major beef recall linked to e-coli, is to blame for one death and at least 18 people getting sick. T
he bacteria was found in 133,000 lbs pounds of ground chuck nationwide.The meat was distributed by Cargill Meat Solutions and produced on June 21st.
They were sold in three, ten, and 20-pound packages at many stores across the United States. The USDA inspection mark on the package says “EST. 86R” inside.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
The agency also reminds consumers to use a meat thermometer to assure an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit, which is necessary to kill bacteria that can cause illness.
