E. Coli contamination prompts hamburger recall

Comments Off

The Associated Press reported that 21 people in eight states may have become ill from e. coli contamination in frozen hamburgers from Topps Meat Company.

At least three of the people affected by the tainted beef have been hospitalized, according to an article on consumerist.com. Topps, based in New Jersey, has recalled 331,582 pounds of frozen burger patties distributed throughout the nation.
