A USDA inspection found E.Coli on October 30th, and managed to trace back the meat to All American Meats. The contaminated meats were produced on October 16. The sell-by date for all the meat being recalled is November 3 and the establishment number on the USDA inspection stamp is 204020. (Click here for more details.)

Since the “Sell-by” date for the meat produced is November 3rd, the USDA is expressing their concerns for the people who still have the meat in their freezers.

E. coli is a potentially deadly bacteria that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps two to eight days after consuming it. Although most people would recover from it, children are more prone to developing a type of kidney failure. Most people recover within a week, but some children under five as well as older adults are at an increased risk of developing a type of kidney failure.
