The U.S. Department of Agriculture warns consumers not to eat the meat, remove it from the refrigerator or freezer, and dispose of it. The department determined the results were actionable.

The E. coli was found through a third-party random inspection.

E. Coli is a bacterium that can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps and dehydration. It can also cause kidney failure and can lead to death. Symptoms of an E. coli infection generally appear between two and eight days after a person has been exposed to E. coli.
