Zillman Meat Market Ready-to-Eat, Custom, Smoked Meat Products Made From Game 2010

An outbreak of E. coli O145 was linked to the consumption of ready-to-eat, custom, smoked meat products that were made from game. These products were produced and sold by the Zillman Meat Market in Wausau, Wisconsin between September 30 and December 28. Fresh meat products apparently were not implicated in the outbreak. Four cases were known in Wisconsin, and three were known in Michigan. The cases in the two states are linked in that they shared Zillman smoked meat products among themselves.
