Recall Issued On Meat Products From Athol Slaughterhouse

Adams Farm Slaughterhouse in Athol is recalling beef, veal, and bison after seven people from four states, including three from MA, were infected with the E.coli virus that was traced back to the facility, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Saturday.

Based on the investigation, 7 case-patients have been identified in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia with illness onset dates ranging from June 27, 2016 to September 4, 2016.

Almost all ill people interviewed drank smoothies containing strawberries at Tropical Smoothie Café locations prior to August 8 in Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

The outbreak, which has sickened seven people, hospitalizing five, from four states has been linked to beef products produced by Adams Farm Slaughterhouse in Athol, Massachusetts, according to officials.

These items were shipped to farmer's markets, retail locations, and restaurants in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and eastern NY.

Those who bought packages of meat with the affected case codes should safely throw the meat out or return it to the seller, the CDC advised.

Health officials said the recalled items were processed and packed between July 21 and September 22, 2016, at Adams Farm Slaughterhouse in Athol, Mass.

He said farmers bring their livestock to his business where the animals are slaughtered, butchered and packaged. Products also may have been shipped to neighboring states in the immediate area. Class-one recalls are defined as "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death", the release said. In severe cases, patients can develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome. These products bear establishment number EST. This occurs most often in young children and older adults, and is evident by easy bruising, pallor and low urine output.

Tropical Smoothie Café removed the contaminated product as of August 8 but symptoms of hepatitis A virus infection can take up to 50 days to appear.
