I see recalls like this one for E.Coli in ground beef at an alarming rate lately. We see pathogens showing up in tomatoes, cantaloupes, spinach, lettuce, peppers, chicken, ground beef, etc. (I won’t even bring up all the pest issues such as the Mexican fruit fly in this entry).
According to sources from the CDC, USDA, Rhode Island Department of Health, and Massachusetts Department of Public Health, over 20 people got sick from E.Coli in ground beef. Most were children ( 6th graders from Lincoln Middle School in Rhode Island) that were on a class field trip. 2 kids are reported to have been hospitalized.
