Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Recently, 3 people in the states of New York and Maine have become ill after eating beef products produced by Cargill that are believed to be tainted with E. Coli.  The products included in this recent outbreak bear establishment number “EST. 9400″ inside the USDA mark of inspection.  The beef products involved were produced on June 11th of this year; they were shipped to Maryland and Connecticut where they were further distributed and repackaged under various retail brand names. If infected by the E. Coli virus, you can learn more from E. Coli attorneys at Brown Chiari. Brown Chiari is a team of Buffalo personal injury attorneys.

E. Coli food poisoning is marked by symptoms that include dehydration, bloody diarrhea and kidney failure.  The frail or elderly, individuals with a weakened immune system and young children are most susceptible to serious or even fatal complications.
