Beef sold in B.C. stores recalled over E. coli

Canadian Safeway stores in Alberta and British Columbia have issued a recall of all regular, lean and extra-lean ground beef after at least 19 people got sick from E. coli poisoning, CTV reports.
The ill have included a baby and three children, one of whom is still in hospital in stable condition. One elderly person is also still being monitored in the hospital.
Safeway has offered a full reimbursement to any customers who may have any of the meat left. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency also recommends anyone who may have consumed the beef to visit their doctor for treatment and to document the occurrence.
