- 23,000 pounds of Kansas beef has been recalled after it was discovered it might contain E. coli bacteria.
- The E. coli strain was found after a routine test on Tuesday morning; no illnesses have been reported.
- Most E.coli strains are harmless, but some strains of the gut bacteria can cause severe food poisoning when ingested.
- The beef was produced in late May and shipped to 12 states, including Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Illinois, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arizona and Arkansas.
- With a limited release shipped only to wholesale distributors and military bases, the beef should be easily found and destroyed. The sell/use by date is June 14.
