“My husband and I had a dinner guest on Friday evening, and I bought minced beef at Dowlings Butchers at their unit in Bloomfields Shopping Center, Dun Laoghaire. Before buying I repeated twice that I was going to make steak tartare and I asked the butcher’s recommendation about the meat. I underlined that it will be eaten raw therefore I needed the best possible meat. That was the main course of the meal, the rest was salad and a frozen dessert. The dinner was prepared within 2 hours from buying the ground meat, and during this time it was stored in the fridge. I'd also like to add that I love steak tartare and I prepare it frequently, and no one ever had any problems because of it.
The following day (Saturday), between 4pm and 6pm all three of us who had eaten from the steak tartar started to have similar symptoms of strong diarrhea, fever and intestinal pain, which symptoms still last well into Sunday evening when I'm writing this. Also, that was the only meal that we all shared.”
