Cargill recalls 66 tons of ground beef after deadly E coli O26 outbreak


A four-state outbreak of E. coli O26 with 18 illnesses including six hospitalizations and one death was reported late Thursday by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which issued a Food Safety Alert about the incident. CDC’s alert followed by several hours the announcement by Cargill Meat Solutions of a recall of beef produced in Colorado that was likely contaminated with E. coli O26.

the Cargill recall was associated with an epidemiological investigation into illnesses with onset dates ranging from July 5 to July 25. CDC said that outbreak “appears to be over.” One death in Florida is associated with the outbreak. Also, CDC reported one person developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which results in kidney failure.

CDC also said 15 of the 18 illnesses involved people in Florida. Colorado, Massachusetts and Tennessee each reported one case.

Cargill early Thursday recalled approximately 132,606 pounds, or 66.3 tons, of ground beef produced at its Fort Morgan, CO, facility. Cargill shipped the recalled beef to retailers nationwide. Made from the chuck portion of the carcass, the recalled beef may be contaminated with Escherichia coli O26, according to FSIS.

Notice that Cargill is NOW recalling beef but the E.coli breakout ended after July 25.

1. Little side issue,

 

Dozens people were hauled away from the Fort Morgan Plant last week accused of being Illegals. Understand form some one in the know,Cargill has been having Labor issues as well as discrimination settlements at this plant.

Do remember activist Picketing at this plant as we pasted by on the third of August.
