Tri-Tips Linked to California E. coli Outbreak

Butte County health officials announced today that leftover frozen tainted tri-tip, that sickened at least 27 people, tested positive for E. coli O157:H7 bacteria.  The bacteria in the meat perfectly matches (by PFGE genetic fingerprint) the bacteria found in stool samples taken from several people who became ill.

    300 immigrants were rounded up in a raid at a chicken processing plant in South Carolina. Should we be preparing for a salmonella outbreak? I saw the story on http://www.foodsafetycentral.net
