Kevin Kowalcyk died at the age of two and a half after eating meat that was contaminated with E coli 0157:H7. He developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and suffered greatly before his death on August 11th 2001. Right now, meat packing plants are the only ones responsible for restricting the amount of bacteria present in the meat they distribute. Please sign this petition to assure that Kevin's Law is passed so that the USDA has more control over the meat packing industry so that more people are not dying prematurely as a result of eating contaminated meat. Justice needs to be served.
