HEB offers refund in frozen ground beef patty recall
Houston Chronicle reports that HEB grocery stores said the chain will give consumers a full refund for patties produced by the Flanders Provision Company, which has recalled 900,000 pounds of frozen ground beef patties over E. coli contamination concerns.
The food was sold under the brand names Flanders Bun Buster, Flanders Beef Patties, America’s Pride Beef Patties, Grill Master Beef Patties, Value Time Beef Patties, Flanders Homestyle Cubed Beef Patties and Flanders Patty Mix.
E. coli is a potentially deadly bacteria that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. The young, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness, according to the USDA.
There have not been any reports of illness linked to the meat.
