The ground beef was produced by All American Meats Inc. at the company’s facilities in Omaha, Nebraska. The strain has been identified as E. coli O157:H7, which can produce a Shiga toxin that causes severe infection.

The items were produced on October 16, 2015 and marked with the establishment number “EST. 20420.” The problem was discovered on October 30 when a positive test result for E. coli was detected by the USDA. No illnesses have been linked to the products..

Consumption of undercooked ground beef contaminated with E. coli can cause deadly infections. Symptoms may include dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps for 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average).

While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5 and older adults. Symptoms include easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Anyone who experiences these symptoms should seek emergency medical care.
