Tyson Ground Beef Recall Timeline

December 16, 2011 - Tyson Fresh Meats Inc. recalled about 40,948 pounds of the following products because they may be contaminated with E. coli bacteria:

  • 10-pound chubs of "CHUCK FINE GROUND BEEF 80/20," packed in cases containing eight chubs

These products can be identified by a ‘BEST BEFORE OR FREEZE BY’ date of 11/13/11 and ‘EST. 245C’ on the box label.

The contamination was discovered through routine testing by the FSIS which confirmed a positive result for E. coli 0157:H7. To date, there have been no illnesses reported in connection with this recall.

The products in question were shipped to retailers and distributors in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

E. Coli Treatment

In most people who contract E. coli food poisoning, symptoms tend to last about a week and usually resolve without any long-term complications. Contrary to popular belief, antibiotics do not cure the illness, and many in the scientific community believe that these drugs actually increase the risk of developing post-diarrheal hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Therefore, apart from supportive care such as hydration and nutrition, there is no specific course of action to reduce the symptoms of E. coli food poisoning.
