A Minnesota meat company is recalling 117,000 pounds of beef being shipped to eight states including Virginia. The USDA says the company is linked to an E.Coli outbreak. Health officials say that the tainted beef has already sickened seven people.
The USDA says the company PM Beef Holdings is voluntarily recalling the beef that was made before March 27th and turned into ground beef to be sold under many different retail brand names.
PM Beef recalled 1,100 pounds of beef back in 2003 for a similar reason. Symptoms of E. Coli include stomach cramps and diarrhea that may turn bloody.
