February 3, 2021 — The USDA is warning that a raw ground beef product sold by Art’s Food Market in Illinois may contain E. coli.
The USDA Food Safety Inspection Service issued a Public Health Alert instead of a recall because the ground beef was no longer available in stores.
Even so, the ground beef could be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers, and it should not be eaten.
The raw beef was produced on January 14, 2021 by Greater Omaha Packing Co., and further processed into ground beef that was sold by Art’s Food Market in Sandwich, Illinois.
The recall involves 2-pound (approximately) trays containing raw ground beef. The trays are labeled with a retail sticker from Art’s Food Market and “PACKED” dates ranging from January 28 to January 31.
Greater Omaha Packing Co. said they accidentally distributed the ground beef after a sample tested positive for E. coli. There are no confirmed reports of illness associated with the recalled beef.
