The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reportedly said that that this recall was related to last week's recall of over 1,000 pounds of ground beef in two Michigan food establishments. The current recall was sparked after health officials say 7 people ate a raw ground beef dish called Kibbeh at a Detroit restaurant that caused, them to fall ill.
Thankfully no deaths have been reported. I guess this means we all have to watch out when purchasing meat to make those sliders for the big game this weekend. You don't want your guests to leave with diseases that can be contracted from tainted food. It's probably best to avoid the ground beef for now. After all, it's better to be safe than sorry.
