Sixth Ground Beef Recall Announced By FSIS, So Far In This E. Coli Season

The sixth beef recall over possible E. coli 0157:H7 contamination this season occurred Monday when Chicago’s International Meat Company Inc. called back a total of 6,152 of ground beef products.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) scored the recall as a Class I event with high health risk.

The recalled ground beef products were produced on June 17, 2009, through June 19, 2009, and were shipped to distributors and restaurants in the Chicago metropolitan area.

The problem was discovered through FSIS microbiological sampling. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a physician.
