Sixty-eight Pounds of E. coli Hamburger Recalled

According to an FSIS release, Harrington and Sons, a Williston, Vt., establishment, is recalling approximately 68 pounds of fresh ground beef 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 products subject to recall include: [View Label]

* 10-pound cryovaced packages of "LaPLATTE RIVER ANGUS FARM, LLC NATURALGROUND BEEF."

* 1.5-pound cryovaced packages of "LaPLATTE RIVER ANGUS FARM, LLC NATURALGROUND BEEF."

Each package label bears the establishment number "EST. 8751" inside the USDA mark of inspection as well as the identifying case code "093491."

The products were produced on December 15, 2009, and were distributed to restaurants and a retail establishment in Chittenden County, Vt. This recall is a consequence of the establishment not properly defining the production lot. 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. 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.
