The CDC and several State Health Departments are investigating an outbreak of E. coli infections that is possibly linked to the recalled products. So far no product has tested positive, and the investigation is ongoing.

Symptoms of E. coli O157:H7 exposure could include stomach cramps and diarrhea, including diarrhea with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. If any of the described symptoms are exhibited, medical attention should be sought.

To date, Giant has not received any reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. Customers may call Giant Customer Service at (888) 469-4426 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for more information. Customers can also visit the Giant Web site at www.giantfood.com.
