Four Minnesota cases of E. coli illness linked to Sam's Club meat

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota health officials say four children became ill from E. coli bacteria last month after eating ground beef patties purchased at three Sam's Club stores in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

The Health Department says the children became ill between September Tenth and September 20th after eating ground beef patties that were purchased frozen under the name "American Chef's Selection Angus Beef Patties" from Sam's Club stores in Eagan, Maple Grove and White Bear Lake.

Sam's Club says it voluntarily removed the product from its stores nationwide after the illnesses were reported.

The company asked customers to return any remaining patties purchased after August 26th to the store or destroy them.

Two of the sick children were hospitalized; one has been discharged and the other remains in the hospital

--- Sam's Club says the patties were produced by Cargill beginning August 26th and had an expiration date of February 12th, 2008.

The patties were coded UPC 0002874907056 Item #700141.
