Possible Risk of E. coli in Beef Products

According to the Associate Press and USDA, a meat company is recalling 129,000 pounds of beef products in 15 states because of possible E. coli contamination.

The meat products are made for Gordon Food Service stores by Davis Creek Meats and Seafood. The beef products were made between March 1 and April 30 and were shipped to distribution centers and retailers in Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

The items which have been recalled include boxes of mechanically tenderized steaks and ground beef of different weights. The boxes are labeled “Est. 1947A”.

Symptoms of E. coli include stomach cramps that may be severe and diarrhea that may turn bloody within one to three days. If the illness goes unchecked, complications from E. coli may lead to kidney failure.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious illness due to unsafe food handling conditions, contact a South Carolina Food Poisoning Lawyer at Louthian Law Firm, P.A., immediately, even if only for an inquiry as to whether or not you may have a case.
