Over 3,000lbs Of Beef Recalled Over Possible E. Coli Contamination

• by Tyler Durden

A routine FSIS inspection of a sample of ground beef made from the boneless beef chuck tested positive for this strain of E. coli, also known as STEC O103, after which the the Harper, Kansas-based outfit issued the recall.

The affected beef products were packaged on Feb. 16, 2023. The recall applies to all corrugated boxes of various weights containing "Elkhorn Valley Pride Angus Beef 61226 BEEF CHUCK 2PC BNLS; Packed on 2/16/23."

The FSIS has provided a list of serial numbers and box count numbers on their website, according to the Epoch Times, which notes that the affected products were shipped to distributors, federal establishments, retail locations and wholesale locations - including hotels, restaurants, and institutions, in Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Consumers are advised not to use or distribute the affected products, and throw them out or return them to where they were purchased.


As the Epoch Times notes;

STEC O103 infection can cause bloody diarrhea and vomiting, and some illnesses can last longer and be more severe.

Most people recover within a week, but some can develop a more severe infection, including hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which is a type of kidney failure. HUS can occur in people of any age but is most common in children under five years old, older adults, and those with weakened immune systems.
