Check your freezers, there's another beef recall.
Two females, one from Door County and one from Green County, have had positive E. coli lab tests and appear to be related. Fresh Brands Distributing is voluntarily recalling certain ground beef products from its Wisconsin-based Piggly Wiggly stores due to possible E. coli contamination.
"The two in particular that we're looking at is the one labeled 'ground chuck' and the other one labeled 'certified angus beef ground round 85-percent lean.'"
Stephanie Marquis with the state Health Department says an E. coli infection can cause bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps and possible kidney failure and even death.
Marquis says, to help prevent contamination, be sure to thoroughly cook your meat and rigorously wash your hands and everything else. If you have the aforementioned meat, you can return it for a refund. According to the CDC, an estimated 73,000 cases of infection and 61 deaths occur each year in the United States alone.
NOTE: The meats have the sell-by dates from July 15th through August 5th. Although those dates have passed, some people might have beef stored in their freezers.
