Illness onset dates range from May 30 to Jun 14, the CDC reported. Nineteen patients have been hospitalized, and one developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a sometimes-fatal kidney condition. No deaths have been reported.

The recalled products, totaling 531,707 pounds, consist of trim, chuck, and other components typically processed into ground beef.

Kumasi Asante Kotoko might have just been named Team of the Year at the Ghana Football Awards on Sunday night but their recent social media work has left fans less than pleased with the club.Kotoko, usually very creative with their designs and announcements on social media, have earned the ire of fans, particularly on Twitter with recent attempts to communicate their activities to their 124,000 followers on the site.In the last month, the club has sent out a number of, according to many of their fans, half-hearted tweets announcing club signings, exits and other announcements.The most recent transfer-related tweet involved the confirmation of the departure of Adingrah Moussa.While the tweet was brief and did not offer much information other than the fact that the player was leaving Kumasi “for Accra en route to Abidjan,” it was the picture which accompanied the post that irked fans the most, with one asking if the club’s social media manager worked for free.last_img read more
