New Ground Beef Recall

American Foods Group has voluntarily recalled 96,000 pounds of ground beef after two people became sick, possibly due to E.coli bacteria. E. coli O157:H7 can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. It also has the potential to be fatal especially in those with weakened or compromised immune systems. The E.coli bacteria lives in the intestines of cattle. The bacteria becomes dangerous to humans when the bacteria comes into contact with meat due to improper butchering or processing. The bacteria is killed if the meat is cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
