ground beef recalled due to e coli
The Meating Place recalled 5 lb. boxes of ground beef patties after FSIS inspection revealed a high risk of E. coli O157:H7 contamination.

Additional stores identified in Cargill meat recall

The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued an expanded distribution list for the 132,606 pounds of ground beef products that have been recalled by Cargill Meat Solutions. The ground beef products distributed to these stores were potentially contaminated with e. coli. FSIS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state public health and agriculture partners determined that raw ground beef was the probable source of 17 illnesses and one death with illness onset dates ranging from July 5 to July 25, 2018.

All of the recalled products have a use by / freeze by date of July 11, 2018, so should no longer be available in stores. However, the FSIS is concerned that consumers may have these products in their freezers and may thaw and eat them in the future.

The stores identified by FSIS as having potentially received at least some of the recalled ground beef products include:

  • Aldi Stores in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Michigan
  • FoodMaxx Stores in California
  • Meijer Stores in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Wisconsin
  • Pak N Save Stores in California
  • Safeway/Albertson’s Stores in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, Wyoming
