E. coli O157:H7 Veal Recalled in California
San Jose Valley Veal, a Santa Clara, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 1,260 pounds of veal trimmings 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:
• 60-pound, cardboard box cases of “SAN JOSE VALLEY VEAL AND BEEF INC.” boneless veal trimmings.
Boxes may contain the case codes: “L-1 11112,” “L-1 11212,” “L-1 11512,” “L-1 11612,” “L-1 11712,” “L-1 11812” or “L-1 11912” and also bear the establishment number “EST. 2828” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The products subject to recall were produced between Nov. 1 and Nov. 9, 2012 then were transported to a federal facility for further distribution. FSIS and the establishment are concerned that some product may be frozen and in customers’ freezers.
The problem was discovered when a customer tested a shipment of veal and reported non-negative results. The customer held the shipment pending laboratory results, but other product from the producer’s same lot had shipped into commerce.
