ATHOL, Mass. (WHDH) — A slaughterhouse in Athol dealing with some of its meat being recalled.
The USDA said the beef, veal and bison from Adams Farm could be contaminated with E.coli.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture recalled dozens of products sent form the slaughterhouse to famers markets, retail locations and restaurants in Massachusetts, Connecticut and eastern New York.
“Our biggest concern right now is to make sure our farmer customers are taken care of,” said Ed Maltby, general manager of Adams Farm.
Maltby said the last few days have not been easy.
“This is devastating for the family,” he said.
The beef products came from animals slaughtered between July 15 and August 24 and were packed between July 21 and September 22.
According to the USDA, at least seven illnesses were reportedly connected to the contamination, and five people were hospitalized.
