August 17, 2021 — Greater Omaha Packing has recalled more than 295,000 pounds of raw beef that may be contaminated with E. coli.
The recalled raw beef was “intended for non-intact use,” such as ground beef and other products.
On July 29, the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) warned that the recalled beef may be contaminated with E. coli, but no illnesses were reported.
The beef was produced on July 13 and are labeled with establishment number EST. 960A inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The packages were distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Nebraska.
There were “no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products,” according to FSIS. The problem was discovered when FSIS collected a routine sample that tested positive for E. coli O157:H7, which can cause severe food poisoning.
