This Greater Omaha Packing beef problem was discovered when FSIS collected a routine product sample that was confirmed positive for the presence of E. coli O157:H7. Anyone who is concerned about an illness should contact their healthcare provider.

Symptoms of an E. coli O157:H7 infection can include a mild fever, vomiting, severe stomach and abdominal cramps, severe stomach and abdominal pain, and diarrhea that is bloody or watery. In some populations, especially children under the age of five, this infection can develop into hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a type of kidney failure that can be deadly. Symptoms of HUS include little urine output, bleeding from the nose and mouth, pale skin, and lethargy.
