The already-affected states are Indiana, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and Virginia. "The only way to0 confirm that raw ground beef is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature".

K2D recalled the ground beef, which had been on the dates March 26, March 29, April 2, April 5, April 10, and April 12, after some of the product tested positive for E. coli O103.

You can prevent the spread of E.Coli by cooking ground beef properly and by washing your hands while preparing the meat.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, "the bulk raw ground beef was produced on October 30-31, 2018 and November 1, 2018". This recall came after the CDC, USDA and Tennessee Department of Health tracked cases to a Tennessee restaurant.

The cases include people who've eaten the beef since March 1, the agency said, but no supplier, distributor or brand of beef has been identified.

Investigations are on-going to determine the source of the ground beef supplied to grocery stores and restaurants.

"Given the numbers of people sickened with E. col iO103 and the number of states involved, I expect the scope of the recall to expand in the coming hours", he said in a statement sent to USA TODAY.

Tainted ground beef, in homes and in restaurants, has been sickening Americans since the beginning of March, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Tuesday.

Consumers may continue eating ground beef, according to the CDC, but should handle it safely and cook it thoroughly to avoid foodborne illness.

The recall notice again states that "At this time, there is no definitive link between this positive product and the ongoing E. coli O103 outbreak". And though patients infected with O103 can develop diarrhea and vomiting that can be lengthy and severe, most recover in a week and HUS is uncommon.
