E.Coli From N.Y. Ground Beef Suspected In Deaths, Illness In Northeast U.S.

November 2, 2009: 08:26 PM EST
Ground beef produced by a farm in western New York State is suspected as the source of E. coli that caused the deaths of two people and may be responsible for illness in 28 others. Fairbank Farms voluntarily recalled 270 tons of ground beef, though it stated that there was no scientific proof that the bacteria came from its products. However, an epidemiologist in New Hampshire, where one of the deaths occurred, said even though the products recalled were well past their shelf date and no longer available, there was still danger from beef that may have been frozen.
