A California company has recalled 153,630 pounds of frozen ground beef, some of which has been linked to an outbreak of E. coli bacteria that shut down a Boy Scout camp in Goshen, Virginia. S&S Foods of Azusa, California, is recalling 30-pound boxes of ground beef that went to distribution centers in Milwaukee and Allentown, Pennsylvania. The company acted on the recommendation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. The meat was intended for food service companies and institutions and was not being sold in stores.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service designated the recall “Class I,” meaning “there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.” The meat could contain E. Coli O157:H7, a toxin-producing strain of bacteria. State health officials said there are 25 confirmed cases among people who attended camp between July 20th and 26th. Two campers who attended a later camp were also infected. More than 80 people have shown symptoms since the outbreak.
