Kids Get E. coli From Sam's Club Patties

Two North Carolina children were infected with E. coli after eating beef recalled patties from Sam's Club.

State health officials say a 10 year old Durham County child and a 14 year old from Orange County attended a cookout on September 15th. The beef was purchased from a Sam's Club in Durham.

On October 6, Cargill recalled 844,812 pounds of frozen ground beef patties after an investigation by Minnesota authorities.

If you have frozen ground beef patties, check to see if they are part of the recall; if they are, then throw them away or return them to the store.

State health experts say anytime you cook hamburger, always make sure to cook it until it is no longer pink and the juice runs clear.
