May 14, 2020 — Food safety officials have issued a Public Health Alert about a risk of E. coli in 70 pounds of frozen raw beef ravioli from P&S Ravioli Company.
No recall was requested because the ravioli is no longer available for purchase, according to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS), but consumers may still have it in their freezers.
No illnesses were reported, but infections with E. coli can potentially cause severe food poisoning.
The ravioli was manufactured by P&S Ravioli Co. in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and distributed to limited number of retail locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The ravioli was produced on April 30, 2020 and sold in 13-oz. boxes labeled as “P&S RAVOLI COMPANY 12 JUMBO MEAT RAVIOLI” with a use-by date of 11/30/2020 and lot code 20121.
P&S Ravioli Co. said their 3rd-party laboratory reported that a sample of ravioli was positive for E. coli O157:H7, but the product had already been shipped into commerce.
Infections with E. coli O157:H7 can be deadly. Healthy adults typically recover within a week, but some people develop a severe type of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS).
