The USDA say the products could have an establishment number “EST. 7914” inside of their packaging.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome. This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults.
If you think you have experience any symptoms, you should seek emergency medical care immediately.
