A large quantity of ground beef has been recalled by the meat producing company, American Food Service, after the meat was suspected to have E. coli. The ground beef had been distributed to restaurants in the Southern California area prior to the recall, though the identities of the restaurants have not been released.
There have been no reports of illnesses due to the contaminated beef. However, there is concern that the beef that had been distributed may be placed into freezers for storage and not properly disposed of.
The ingestion of E. coli can cause many harmful side effects including diarrhea, failure of the kidney, and, even, death.
