1 Million Pounds of Beef Contaminated with E. Coli

submitted on August 9, 2010 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
So much for worry free grilling of those hamburgers this coming weekend

See the link for a list of affected products.

Cute enough of a little bacterium, but not very nice to the stomach.

    How much of this do you think is actually still out there? Hopefully it's only in a limited area. (although I did see Smashburger in the list, and would they redistribute?) They were produced between October 2, 2009 and January 12, 2010 and sold in California, Texas, Oregon, Arizona and internationally.

    This may be a good time for me to enjoy all those summer veggies and fruits, and pass on the burgers. Roll Eyes

    Actually, if they're cooked well enough the bacteria could be killed off.

      A lot of it was sold as frozen product, so it probably is still out there.

    I would think that most of this has already been eaten by now. Yikes!
