following a report that three individuals from the same family had become ill with E. coli food poisoning after consuming the beef product.

The beef used in the mixture came from two unidentified meat suppliers and was ground in the store on July 21. Sixty-five packages of the suspect beef were produced on that day; however, ground meat produced between June 30 and August 1 is being recalled as an added precaution.

The New York State Health Department announced that a possible fourth case of E. coli infection reported in Westchester County was not linked to the three cases associated with hamburger meat purchased at Stew Leonard’s.

E. coli foodborne illness is most often associated with eating undercooked, contaminated ground beef and other meat products. Other sources of infection include contaminated non-pasteurized milk and juice, sprouts, and leafy greens such as lettuce and spinach.

Bacteria in the stools of infected individuals can be passed from one person to another if hygiene or hand-washing habits are inadequate.
