USDA Recalling 5,620 Pounds Of Meat Due To E.Coli


Marcho Farms is recalling beef, veal and pork products from Food Lion stores due to the presence of non-0157 Shiga Toxin which could lead to E.Coli.

A sample tested by the Illinois State Meat Inspection Service came back positive for the toxin.

The USDA has labelled it a high risk recall.

The tainted products were produced between April 11-14 and were in-stock at stores in Illinois, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia.
No illnesses have been reported yet but if you experience any symptoms including abdominal pain and dehydration, seek medical help right away.

If you bought meat from Food Lion in the last month the USDA advises that you throw it away or return it to the store.

Update, 5/9: It was initially reported that Walmart stores were affected by this recall however a company representative has confirmed that Macho Farms is not a Walmart supplier. The USDA released the distribution list and it only includes Food Lion stores in the six states mentioned above.
