The beef products were identified after an investigation into an E. coli outbreak, which had resulted in 17 illnesses and one death since Aug. 16, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in a statement.

Each patient had consumed ground beef products purchased at various retail stores that were supplied by Cargill Meat Solutions, according to FSIS.

The items carry an “EST. 86R” label inside the USDA mark of inspection, and were produced and packaged on June 21.

Showers will continue overnight and heading into Wednesday morning. There is the possibility some patchy fog could also develop so you may want to allow some extra time to get to work in the morning. Lows will be in the 60s.
