Urgent Alert Issued To Montana For Contaminated Ground Beef

Growing up in a cattle ranching family, almost every single meal I ate was made with ground beef.

The FSIS Issued The Warning On Saturday

A potential E. coli contamination is what the alert was issued for this past Saturday.

E. coli can cause symptoms like vomiting, bloody diarrhea, and cramping that can, in some cases, be life-threatening for those both young and old with compromised immune systems, according to the CDC.

At this time, there is no recall for the contaminated beef, but that's because the beef containing potential E. coli contamination has all been sold and is no longer on the store shelves.
