E. coli bacteria hit close to home striking patrons of Sam's Club in Waukesha, Wisconsin, which I shop at. Yesterday, Carneco Foods of Columbus, Nebraska (a venture between Tyson Foods and Carneco Holdings) recalled 497,000lbs of frozen ground beef and beef patties that may have the bacteria, which can cause horrible injuries, O157:H7 a strain of E. coli.
Ecoli exposure should send you to the doctor asap for treatment and testing for this strain of Ecoli. I do not recommend contacting Carneco Foods or Sam's Club. Here are the beef products in the Sams Club E. coli recall:
Northern Plains Beef Sirloin and Beef Patties 85/15 (6lb bags, code 17304, Best by 12/18/04), Northern Plains Gourmet Beef Patties (10lb boxes, cde 17304, Best by 12/18/04), Fine Ground Beef 91/09 (8 & 10lb boxes, Sell/Freeze by 7/10/04), and Seasoned Beef Patties (misformed) (7lb boxes, code 17304, Best by 12/18/04).
E. coli O157:H7 is deadly and can cause diarrhea and dehydration. Those needing more info on E Coli or Sams Club E. coli recall can see my firm site's E. coli, Food illnesses & bacteria, and Wisconsin e.coli court decision and aUSDA release, Nebraska Firm Recalls Ground Beef Products For Possible E. coli O157:H7.
