As the beef recall grows, B.C.'s Chief Medical Health officer has some good news.
"We do every year get a number of E coli. cases, we haven't had any associated or confirmed with this outbreak with the contamination at the XL plant, to date."
Dr. Perry Kendall urges consumers to check the recall list on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
And what about people who like their steak rare?
"If you really want to be on the safe side, you'd be going medium well."
Dr. Kendall says steak is generally safe, but there is the chance it can be contaminated if it's tenderized.
