Like Sherman’s march through the South in the Civil War, Cargill’s E. coli contaminated frozen meat patties have headed South as well. The News Observer reports that a 10-year-old in Durham County and a 14-year-old in Orange County were infected with E. coli that authorities believe came from ground beef patties that were recalled last week. Cargill Inc. last week recalled more than 840,000 pounds of ground beef patties distributed at Sam’s Club stores nationwide after four Minnesota children developed E. coli illness. State officials said stool samples from the Durham and Orange children had the same DNA fingerprint as that in the contaminated beef.
