The recalled product is described as follows:
5-pound and 10-pound vacuum sealed plastic bags of "DUTCH PRIME FOODS HAMBURGER."
The hamburger, which was produced on November 18th and bears establishment number 5206 inside the USDA inspection seal, was distributed to restaurants in New Jersey.
E. coli O157:H7 infections usually produce stomach cramps and watery diarrhea. Often, the diarrhea is bloody. Young children are especially susceptible to developing potentially life-threatening complications – notably hemolytic uremic syndrome – as a result of an infection with E. coli O157:H7.
No illnesses have been associated with this recall. Nevertheless, consumers who ordered hamburger – especially rare hamburger – in a New Jersey restaurant after November 18th and who develop symptoms of gastroenteritis should seek immediate medical attention.
