(Hartford, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – The state Department of Public Health has released a list of Connecticut farms that have been identified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as having received tainted meat from an Athol, Massachusetts slaughterhouse.
This comes in response to a recent E.coli outbreak in several states including Connecticut.
Eleven farms in all received the beef, veal, and bison meat.
DPH says the state Department of Agriculture is now trying to determine if any of the farmers markets had animals processed at Adams Slaughterhouse.
The DPH is advising consumers and retailers with any leftover meat to check the USDA plant code number on the label to verify if the product was processed at the slaughterhouse.
E.coli can cause severe stomach cramps, vomiting, fever and diarrhea.
Most who get sick recover within 5-7 days. However, other cases can be severe and even life-threatening.

1 Campbell Farm Stand 1 Campbell Road Griswald CT-Connecticut
