The 27-year-old ended his first day as an international cricketer with a public apology but was not considered for the next match and an investigation by the Cricket Discipline Committee saw him served with an eight-match ban, with five of those suspended for two years.

Greater Omaha Packing, a beef supplier and producer based in Omaha, Nebraska, is recalling "approximately 295,236 pounds of raw beef products intended for non-intact use that may be contaminated with E. coli," the Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced in a statement Friday.

The wholesaler produces about 150,000 boxes of beef and variety meats that are then sold throughout the U.S. every week.

  Fentanyl seizures increase again at southern border, now 78% higher than last fiscal year The amount of fentanyl seized at the border by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) increased again in June as part of a continued surge in seizures of the deadly drug.CBP seized 1,060 pounds of the deadly drug in June. That is the highest amount seized since December and a 12% increase overall from May, when 948 pounds were seized. Comparatively, it is higher than 713 pounds seized in June 2020, and the 293 pounds seized in June 2019.

The potentially contaminated raw beef products were "intended for non-intact use" and produced on July 13, according to the FSIS.

Non-intact beef products include beef that has been injected or enhanced with solutions, or mechanically tenderized by needling, cubing, or pounding devices.

According to beefresearch.org, the primary concern involving non-intact beef is the introduction or translocation of surface pathogens, such as E. coli O157:H7, into the deep, internal tissues of the final product.

The complete list of products and product codes for the beef products that are subject to recall can be found on the FSIS website.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number "EST. 960A" inside the USDA mark of inspection and were distributed to further processors in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Nebraska.

There have so far been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

E. coli, short for Escherichia coli, is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website states that most people begin to experience symptoms three to four days after consuming food infected with the bacterium.

While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5 years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

New bank loan to beef business linked to meeting targets on emissions and animal welfare

  New bank loan to beef business linked to meeting targets on emissions and animal welfare A Queensland beef business will have the interest on a bank loan charged according to how it reduces greenhouse gases, meets animal welfare targets, and provides a safe workplace for its staff. In what Commonwealth Bank claims is a first for Australian agriculture, the Stockyard Group has taken out a 'sustainability linked loan'  that could see it save tens of thousands of dollars for meeting certain social responsibilities.

In November 2019, an investigation was launched into E. coli outbreaks in 16 states that sickened dozens of people across the U.S.

One outbreak was found to have been carried by whole romaine heads, while the other was restricted to salad kits packaged by Fresh Express.

At the time, the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised consumers to avoid romaine lettuce grown in the region around Salinas, California, or any lettuce whose place of origin is unknown.
