The CDC now recommends that consumers throw away or return any meat listed above. Before consuming any questionable meet, be sure to test for E. Coli with at-home testing strips available here.

E.Coli can cause serious infection, producing severe stomach cramps, bloody diarrhea, a fever, and prolonged vomiting. Most people recover from symptoms within 5 to 7 days.
