Beef recall from Wolverine Packing Company out of Detroit ,Michigan

Nearly two million pounds of ground beef have been pulled from stores and restaurants nationwide because of a possible eColi contamination.

The recall covers beef from Wolverine Packing Company in Detroit, Michigan.
The potentially tainted meat was shipped to distributors for restaurant use in Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.
   
Officials say they suspect 11 people were sickened by the beef.
Health officials are checking restaurants to make sure more people aren't served the meat.
   
Health officials say the best way to avoid getting sick is to order or cook your burger "well done." 

 "When you make ground beef in particular it gets mashed into the meat so it can live there and prosper which is one of the reasons we emphasize that you  have to heat the meat to at least 165 degrees."
 
The Wolverine Packing Company says all the meat is now out of circulation.

The company defended its product saying in a statement that none of their meat officially tested positive for the pathogen.
