Hey how bad can my digestive system be   tongue ....I ate beef that is recalled for e.coli  skull   and I am doing great.
Well, it was cooked well in meatballs I made on Halloween.  I even ate more of the meatballs twice since then.  I believe I cooked them well enough that it kills any bacteria.  It was weird though that our grocery store called us that we bought recalled beef---hate those "big brother tracks you, only get a sale price if you use our card" programs, but I guess that is an upside to them.
The grocery said to bring in the beef for a refund....do you think they would refund two pounds of price for one last meatball in sauce!
My guts can attack anything!!!!!
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

Habs- glad you are feeling a-ok. I bet they are recalling more than they need to just to be safe. As far as "big brother" I heard a story once about a guy who slipped and fell in the super market and sued. The super market wanted to say that the guy fell because he was drunk (comparative negligence) instead of because of the stores negligence. They used his "savings card" record to show how much alcohol he bought on a daily basis. I don't know how the case ended.

I did the same thing with Stop and Shop. I had already eaten it when they announced the recall. I was fine, considering. Maybe it was cooked just enough

Hey Randy...Why stop at 2lbs of Doody? They gave Habs a freebie with her purchase!

Glad you're okay Habs!

hspenser- Excellent point! I often wondered if pred is messing with my female hormones, how can I take a progesterone test to determine whether or not I've officially gone through menopause? Wouldn't that screw with the test results? No need to respond...I already know the answer!

Im with Randy , bring in a bag of doody and a bag of barf. Let them choose. Be sure to use zip locks.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
