What To Do If You Purchased The Ground Beef
The USDA is urging those who may have purchased the ground beef, to either get rid of it, or get your money back from where you purchased it from.
What Happens If You Get E. coli?
E Coli have symptoms such as stomach cramps, fevers, as well as diarrhoea.
If you do get the sickness, you might notice symptoms within 3 to 4 days after contracting the sickness. However, symptoms may not show up until 1-14 days after original exposure.
There is also no specific treatment for e coli poisoning either, so the only way to get over it is to wait it out. If you do end up contracting e coli, it is best to stay hydrated.
