Be Careful. Ground Beef RECALL in the US!
« on: Jun 19, 2013 @ 01:10 PM »
I'm pescatarian turned vegan now back to pescatarian as of 2 weeks ago. My hubby eats red meat about twice a month and my kids eat it about twice a year. Trying to completely rid of it. Anyway I found this recall this morning:

The United States Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Tuesday that 22,737 pounds of ground beef will be recalled over fears that they could be infected with E. coli.

The FSIS categorized the recall as Class I, meaning its a health hazard situation in which is likely that the use of the product will result in serious adverse health consequences or death.

The products to be recalled were packaged in clear, 10 pound chubs by National Beef Packing Co. in Liberal, Kansas and were shipped to several wholesale locations in the region. They items subjected to the recall are:

- 10 lb. packages of National Beef 80/20 Coarse Ground Chuck, package code 0481.
- 10 lb. packages of National Beef 81/19 Coarse Ground Beef, package code 0421.
- 10 lb. packages of National Beef 80/20 Fine Ground Chuck, package code 0484.

All packages were produced on May 25, 2013 and have a Use By/ Sell By date of June 14, 2013.

The contamination was discovered during a routine checkup of the product by the FSIS. No illnesses related to the consumption of the packages have been reported.
