New York Market Recalls Ground Beef

Market-in-the-Square (940 Union Rd., West Seneca, NY) has recalled "ground round" beef with a sell-by date of Sep 6,  2008 after the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets detected E. coli O157:H7 in a sample of the meat.

The potentially contaminated meat was sold at retail only through the Market-in-the-Square store in West Seneca. Anyone who has consumed this meat and experiences symptoms of E. coli O157:H7 gastroenteritis should contact a medical practitioner immediately. Children are especially susceptible to life-threatening complications such as kidney failure due to Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome as a result of an E. coli O157:H7 infection.

Consumers who purchased the recalled meat should either discard it or return it to Market-in-the-Square for a full refund.
