October 13, 2023 — A recall has been issued for nearly 60,000 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli O103.
The recall was announced by American Foods Group LLC, doing business as Green Bay Dressed Beef, of Wisconsin.
The meatpacking company produced the ground beef items on August 14, 2023 and packaged the ground beef into 10-pound plastic tubes called “chubs.”
The items were shipped in 80-pound cases to distributors in Georgia, Michigan, and Ohio, where they may have been further processed into smaller sizes or re-labeled.
The boxes and/or chubs may be labeled with the following information:
- “90050 BEEF FINE GROUND 81/19” with lot code D123226026
- “20473 BEEF HALAL FINE GROUND 73/27” with lot code D123226027
- “20105 BEEF FINE GROUND 73/27” with lot code D123226027
No illnesses were reported as of September 15, 2023, but E. coli O103 can cause serious food poisoning infections. The infection is diagnosed with a stool sample, although many laboratories do not test for this specific strain of E. coli because it is harder to identify.
The symptoms of an infection with E. coli O103 may include vomiting and diarrhea, which may be bloody, according to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).
