Tainted beef traced to Adams Farm in Athol, Ma.


Seven people in four states have taken ill, and according to the Centers for Disease Control, an E. coli outbreak caused by beef products could be to blame.

Five of the seven have been hospitalized from the states of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Massachusetts fro late June through early September.

The Centers for Disease Control and the Department of Agriculture have traced the origin of the disease to the Adams farm Slaughterhouse in Athol, Ma.

Adams Farm is voluntarily recalling beef, veal and bison products due to the possible E. coli contamination.

The USDA urges people to rid yourself asap of all recalled meat -- both frozen and refrigerated -- or return the products to the point of purchase.

You also might want to keep this recall in mind as you visit your local restaurant.
