Working in conjunction with the Vermont Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, FSIS determined the Cooked Beef Burgers that were served at an event at Bread & Butter Farm was the probable source of the reported illnesses.

Traceback information indicated that both case-patients consumed Ground Beef Products at Bread & Butter Farm which was supplied by Vermont Livestock Slaughter & Processing.
