E. coli in beef leading to hospitalizations
MSNBC is reporting that at least 12 hospitalizations have occurred due to E. coli contamination in beef. Some of these patients have even suffered kidney failure. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 23 people in nine states may have become ill after eating beef produced by JBS Swift Beef Co. of Greeley, Colo. I think it's time to make sure my beef is cooked well-done for a while. Forget eating medium-rare or even medium steaks. To read the full story on MSNBC, click here.
