USDA Issues Ground Beef Recall Due to E. Coli Risk

November 2, 2015 — All American Meats Inc. has recalled about 167,427 pounds of ground beef due to possible contamination with E. coli.

No illnesses have been linked to the recall. The contamination was discovered during routine testing by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), which classified the recall as Class I.

The products were produced on October 16 at a facility in Omaha, Nebraska. Contamination was confirmed on October 30. The products bear the establishment number “EST. 20420.”

Products included in the recall:

  • 80-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef 80% Lean 20% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 62100.
  • 80-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef 73% Lean 27% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 60100.
  • 60-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef Round 85% Lean 15% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 68560.

  • 80-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef Chuck 81% Lean 19% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 63100.

The strain has been identified as E. coli O157:H7, which can cause severe, life-threatening infections because it produces Shiga toxin. Symptoms often include diarrhea (may be bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting for 3-4 days.

Infection can lead to a severe complication known as Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), a type of kidney failure that occurs when red blood cells are destroyed. The disease is most serious for children under 5 years old and elderly adults.
