E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause serious illness, including hemolytic uremic syndrome that can lead to kidney failure. The only way to confirm that ground beef is safe is to cook it to 160 degrees F and check that temperature with a meat thermometer. For questions, call 1-866-761-9472.
