Ground beef sold at Target, Sam's Club recalled because deadly E. coli outbreak

USDA says 1 person dead, 17 sick due to outbreak

Over 132,000 pounds of U.S. meat that was recalled last week was sold at Target and Sam's Club nationwide, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released

Cargill Meat Solutions issued the recall on Sept. 19.

The release stated the affected products have the establishment number “EST. 86R” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The meat was produced and packaged on June 21 and shipped to stores nationwide. The full list of recalled products is at the end of this story.

One person has died and 17 people have been sickened between July 5 to July 25 from the tainted meat, according to the FSIS. Officials said they are worried some buyers might still have recalled ground beef in their freezers. Consumers are urged not to eat the meat and to instead throw it away or return it to the store were it was bought.

This recall comes after an Aug. 30 meat recall from the same company. The August recall was due to E.coli in ground beef shipped specifically to Publix stores, including those in Florida. The most recent recall is for a different strain of E.coli, but both strains can affect those who eat them between two and eight days after consumption, according to the FSIS.

The recall notice said most people infected by E.coli will develop diarrhea and vomiting. The infection can become more severe and possibly cause kidney failure. Officials said anyone affected should seek medical care immediately.

Anyone with questions about the recall can call 844-419-1574.
