Publix Recalls Ground Beef Due to E. coli

The supermarket chain Publix recalled many ground beef products shipped to Florida stores over concerns of E. coli contamination. Publix shipped an undetermined amount of potentially-contaminated ground chuck products to two dozen counties between June 25 and July 31.

About E.Coli

E. coli is a bacteria that normally live in the intestines of healthy people and animals. While most strains are harmless, the one found in recent patients, 0157: H7, is a specific strain that can cause serious illness. Symptoms of E. coli typically begin two to eight days after consuming the bacteria, although most patients become ill three or four days after consumption. These symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting. Most people recover in five to seven days. However, those most at risk include the very young, the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems.
