Wisconsin Firm Recalls Beef Products For Possible E. coli O157:H7

Packerland Packing Company, a Green Bay, Wis., firm, is recalling approximately 59,000 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.
The ground beef subject to recall was produced on September 2, 2004 and was shipped to distributors in Louisiana, Virginia, South Carolina, Indiana, Massachusetts, Wisconsin and Illinois for sale in restaurants and retail stores.
The products subject to recall include:

  • 10-pound chubs of “IMPERIAL BEEF FINE GROUND 81/19.” The chubs are packed four to a case and each case bears the code “G18148FR.”
  • 10-pound chubs of “PPC’S GROUND BEEF, FINE GROUND SIRLOIN 95/5.” The chubs are packed four to a case and each case bears the code “G49548RO.”
  • 10-pound chubs of “PPC’S GROUND BEEF, COARSE GROUND SIRLOIN 95/5.” The chubs are packed four to a case and each case bears the code “G49540PP.”

All of the boxes and the chubs bear the establishment code “Est. 562B,” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
On September 17, FSIS was notified by the company that the ground beef, which should have become cooked product, was mistakenly mixed with other beef produced on September 2. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product.
