Beltex Corporation recalling beef due to potential E. coli contamination

The following press release was issued by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture

WASHINGTON, April 21, 2010 – Beltex Corporation, a Fort Worth, Texas, establishment, is recalling approximately 135,500 pounds of beef trim products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following products are subject to recall:

Various pound boxes of "FRONTIER MEATS BEEF TRIMMING 50/50"

Various pound boxes of "FRONTIER MEATS BEEF COMBO BNLS"

Various pound boxes of "FRONTIER MEATS BEEF COMBO TRIM 75/25"

Various pound boxes of "FRONTIER MEATS BEEF COMBO TRIM 85/15"

Various pound boxes of "FRONTIER MEATS BEEF COMBO BONELESS NAVEL"

E. coli O157:H7 in beef products raised concerns about the safety of the product.  FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these recalled products. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a physician.  E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure. The very young, seniors and persons with weak immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.  FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers (including restaurants) of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
