BREAKING NEWS: E. Coli Outbreak Expands To Major Grocery Retailers
A recall from an E.coli scare at Costco has now been expanded to more than a dozen states. Last week, Taylor Farms Pacific recalled 71 different products sold at leading chains like Walmart, Target, Albertson’s, 7-Eleven and even Starbucks which may contain tainted celery. So far, the recall has affected more than 155,000 individual items.
Products affected by the recall include deli chicken, pasta, and potato salads, chicken and tuna salad kits, and turkey and stuffing sandwiches sold at Starbucks. The full list of recalled products is here.
So far, 19 people have been infected with the outbreak strain in seven states, according to the CDC. Five of the infected were hospitalized. The number of people sickened in the outbreak will likely grow over the next few weeks, even though the product has been removed from store shelves, the CDC said Wednesday.
