TUESDAY, June 16, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Nearly 43,000 pounds of ground beef products have been recalled by New Jersey-based Lakeside Refrigerated Services due to possible contamination with potentially deadly E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says.
The products were produced on June 1, 2020 and sold across the U.S. under the labels Marketside Butcher and Thomas Farms.
There haven't been any confirmed reports of illness due to consumption of these products, according to FSIS.
E. coli O157:H7 can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 28 days (34 days, on average) after exposure to the organism. Most people recover within a week, but some develop kidney failure, FSIS said.
For more information about the recall, consumers can call Lakeside at (856) 832-3881.
