ROGERS, Ark.: What took them so long? Meat processor Hudson Foods Co. is warning consumers nationwide to get rid of burgers that may be contaminated with the deadly E.coli bacteria. The recall comes two months after the patties were produced, and is definitely too late for four people in Colorado who downed a few last month and got sick. Hudson doubts any of the burgers are still on store shelves, but says you should check your freezer for 48-ounce packages with the code 156A7, three-pounders (156B7) and 15-pound boxes (155B7). Especially dangerous to children, the elderly and people with weak immune systems, E.Coli can cause dehydration and diarrhea. I'll just have a salad, thanks.
