USDA: Target, Sam's among stores affected by ground beef recall


The U.S. Department of Agriculture says a recent recall of ground beef due to possible E.coli contamination has extended to Target and Sam's Club stores nationwide.

The E. coli outbreak has so far killed one person and sickened 17. 

Last week, the USDA said that Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan, Colo., had recalled more than 132,000 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated. The items were produced and packaged on June 21 and shipped to retailers nationwide.

The products include 3-pound, 10-pound and 20-pound packages of ground beef under various band names with July 11 use- or freeze-by dates.

E. coli can cause stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, and fever. Infections can develop within just one day and as late as 10 days after ingestion.
