A trailer-load - some 14,800 pounds - of ground beef products was stolen from Texas American Food Service Corporation of Fort Worth (a.k.a. American Fresh Foods). This would be a simple police matter, except that the ground beef may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.
When they discovered the theft, the company notified USDA. The agency has issued a public health alert, which provides details of the establishment number, lot numbers, and packaging. If you have purchased any of ground beef described in the USDA notice, please discard it or return it to the store.
