Cargill Meat Solutions is recalling 132,606 pounds of ground beef! Woah, that's literally tons of beef!

According to the USDA and CDC, at least one person has already died with 17 people currently sick after eating this beef. It was likely raw ground beef that they ate.

KARE 11 reports that the USDA said, "the beef was made from the chuck portion of the carcass that may be contaminated" and the beef was also being sold nationally.

Please, please check your freezers and throw out this meat! The meat that was contaminated is labeled with the establishment number “EST. 86R” which is inside the USDA mark on the packaging.
