There is a ground beef recall. Is any of the meat in your fridge affected? First Class Foods, Inc has recalled 34,373 lbs.of ground beef due to possible E. Coli contamination. A sample from the distributor has tested positive for the bacteria.
Â“EST. 18895Â” is printed all all the packages in the ground beef recall, and the processed meats were produced between December 7 and December 16. The meat was distributed to the states of California, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Washington. Consumers in these states need to check the ground beef in their refrigerators and freezers to ensure that it is not one of the possibly contaminated packages from First Class Foods, Inc.
So far there havenÂ’t been any reports of illness from the E. Coli, but a sampling tested positive for the scary bacteria. Hopefully no consumers will get ill as a result of the contamination. The symptoms of E. Coli are bloody diarrhea, dehydration which could lead to kidney failure in severe cases. Those who are most at risk are the very old and very young as well as people with weakened immune systems.
If you have meat from the ground beef recall hotlist and want to ask further questions, you can call 310-676-2500. How scary it is for there to be yet another food recall at the beginning of this year! Thank goodness the problem was discovered before people started getting sick in this case, and hopefully nobody will become ill from the contaminated ground beef.
