E-Coli Notification
(2008-07-14)
(wgvu) - - Ohio's agriculture director says the state
plans to speed up public notification of tainted food products in
the wake of an E. coli outbreak that sickened more than 40 people
in Ohio and Michigan.
Robert Boggs says he'll no longer wait until other agencies or
companies are prepared to announce tainted products identified
through laboratory tests run by his department.
Ohio officials on June 23 had test results that confirmed beef
was contaminated with E. coli, but the information wasn't released
until June 25.
The tainted meat was later traced to Nebraska Beef Limited,
which recalled 5.3 million pounds of beef last week.
