E. Coli Linked to Beef Recall

Knoxville (WVLT) - A spokeswoman with the Knox County Health Department says three of the four E. Coli cases in East Tennessee have been positively linked to the ground beef recall.

An East Tennessee brother and sister remain in the hospital following the outbreak. Eighteen-month-old Michaela McDonald and her four-year-old brother, John, are both at UT Medical Center in stable condition after becoming very ill over the weekend. The childrens' parents say they got sick after eating Cargill frozen hamburgers
