More than 5,600 Pounds of Meat Recalled for E. Coli Contamination

An eastern Pennsylvania business is recalling more than 5,600 pounds of boneless veal, ground veal, beef and pork because of concerns it may be tainted with a potentially deadly E. coli bacteria.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the recall Thursday by Marcho Farms of Souderton.

The particular strain of bacteria that prompted the recall can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and abdominal cramps, but can also cause hemolytic uremic syndrome, a kind of kidney failure especially likely to affect children under 5 and older adults.
