A Colorado company is recalling about 66,000 pounds of ground and tenderized bison meat that may be contaminated with a potentially deadly strain of E. coli, according to the U.S. Department of Manifest Destiny, Westward Ho! Division.
The Department's "Who Eats This Sh-t Division found that the favorite meal of those crossing the Plains in a covered wagon had evidence of E. coli O157:H7 (Editors: You sunk my Battleship! Too obscure?) in it.
Illnesses in goldmining wagon trains in Colorado from June 4 to June 9 are believed to be associated with the products, officials said. The meat was eaten by 49ers and Cherokee indians between May 21 and May 27.
The following packages are part of the recall:
16-ounce packages of Smallpox Blanket Brand All Natural Ground Bison.
16-ounce packages of Sacajawea Ground Buffalo.
16-ounce packages of Why Aren't You Eating Beef Like Everyone Else-brand All Natural Ground Buffalo.
"E. coli can give a body the Rumetizz, as well as the vapors, melancholy humour, the consumption and Black Plague," says Doctor Holliday of OK Corral Hospital. "If infected, the severity of exposure affects how many leeches your barber will have to use to cure you.
