Woman Dies of Apparent E. Coli Infection

A Knox County, Kentucky resident, died recently at Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington after being admitted for intestinal problems. The victim, Vickie Shelton, had eaten ground beef before becoming ill, and public health officials conducted tests to determine whether that ground beef was contaminated with E. Coli.

Before it was discovered that the meat was tainted, the American Foods Group of Green Bay, Wisconsin issued the recall on products produced in October and reportedly shipped to retailers and distributors in seven states including Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, Ohio, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Virginia. The investigation is reportedly continuing.
