All of the ground beef packages have the establishment number “EST. 208A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were produced on July 18, 2013 and were shipped in 40 to 60 pound cases to retailers, wholesalers, and food service distributors nationwide.

So far, there are no reports of any illnesses. E. Coli 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.
