14th E.coli case in NH leads to recall of 8,800 pounds of ground beef from local farm


NORTH HAVERHILL — The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) has announced a connection between a N.H. farm and at least eight out of 14 local cases of E.coli.

The Granite Staters who got sick were diagnosed after consuming ground beef. As a result, PT Farm in North Haverhill is recalling 8,800 pounds of ground beef produced between June 6 and June 16.

The recalled beef processed at PT Farm comes from its own stock supply, as well as animals from Chestnut, Miles Smith and Robie farms in N.H.

FSIS stated they are worried costumers may be storing contaminated ground beef in freezers.

E.coli poses the biggest danger to the very young and the elderly. Symptoms include dehydration, bloody diarrhea and stomach cramps.

The investigation remains ongoing.
