More bad news for area burritos: Tyson Fresh Meats is recalling over 40,000 pounds of ground beef in 16 different states, including New York, after the USDA discovered E. coli in a regularly scheduled test of the meat. According to NY1, the company is specifically pulling "10 pound packages of chuck ground beef," so everyone celebrating the 4th of July in December should be extra vigilant.
No cases of illness have been reported yet. If you think you're in possession of tainted beef, you should give Tyson a call (1-866-328-3156). And now would be a great time to learn about where beef comes from. Take it away, Troy.
