    Thank you so much for this information. My otherwise extremely healthy 26 year old son is currently diagnosed with renal failure, and they don’t know why yet. Another doctor appointment today, but in the mean time, I still cannot get any answers from Kroger about if this meat was sold at Fred Meyer stores. I am convinced he has been stricken by e coli via beef.

    So, why isn’t a list of retail outlets a mandatory thing? Seems to me that announcing a packer recall is useless information for the general public.
