E. Coli in Six States Linked to Recalled Beef

E Coli Linked To Recalled Beef

Recalled Beef Products Over E. Coli

National Steak and Poultry, of Owasso, Oklahoma has recalled 248,000 of beef products because of potential contamination with E. coli O157 H7.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety & Inspection Service (FSIS),  this beef recall has been classified as Class I, meaning that the risk of serious illness is high.  The recalled products have been associated with a cluster of  illnesses in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, South Dakota and Washington.


E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure. The very young, seniors and persons with weak immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.
