Ground Beef E. coli Recall Includes North Dakota Supervalu Stores

Two Supervalu stores in North Dakota are among the retailers affected by the 1.8 million pound ground beef recall associated with an E. coli outbreak that has sickened at least 11 people. The stores are located in Beulah and New Town.

Consumers who have purchased beef that is part of the recall should not eat it as it may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 bacteria which can cause serious illness or death. 

Five people in Michigan, four in Ohio, one person in Massachusetts and one person in Missouri have all been diagnosed with confirmed cases of E.coli poisoning. Six of them required hospitalization.

Some E.coli infections trigger a condition called  hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) which causes kidney failure. HUS most often affects children under 5-years old and older adults, but can happen to people of any age. Signs of HUS include pallor, skin that is easily bruised and decreased urine output. See a doctor immediately if you have experienced these symptoms and mention your possible exposure to E.coli as antibiotics make E.coli infections worse.
