Texas Culebra Meat Market announces beef recall
Culebra Meat Market No. 1 announced Tuesday a recall of three beef cuts because of a possible E. coli contamination: beef asada, beef stew meat and ground beef.
The beef was sold to area restaurants and to individual customers from Oct. 2 through Thursday and bears state inspection legend No. 740.
The recall does not affect the chain’s other stores.
The announcement said that eating food contaminated with E. coli can cause illness if it’s not cooked to an internal temperature of at least 148 degrees.
