Check the label before throwing a burger on the grill this Memorial Day. Nearly 2 million pounds of ground beef products are being recalled over possible E-Coli contamination. The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement yesterday. The recall covers beef from Wolverine Packing Company in Detroit. Affected products were made between March 31 and April 18. At least 11-people in four-states have been sickened. Doctors say this strain of E-Coli gets in the blood stream and can damage organs.

"Most people will get relatively sick from it," said Dr. Steve McGraw. "They'll get diarrhea, abdominal cramps, feel pretty unhealthy, fever. Some even have some blood in their stool."

The beef was shipped to distributors for restaurant use in Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio. No deaths have been reported. It can take up to 10 days to get sick after eating something contaminated. Doctors advise is ordering burgers well done.
