Another day, another big Class I beef recall

May 18, 2008

JSM Meat Holdings Company, Inc., a Chicago, Ill., firm, is voluntarily recalling an undetermined amount of beef products intended for use in ground products because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

Thr recall involves beef products distributed for further processing in 11 states – Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The following products are subject to recall:
30-, 60- pound boxes, combo boxes or 47-gallon barrels of “MORREALE MEAT” beef products labeled as “Boneless Chucks,” “Boneless Clods,” “Flat Rounds,” “Gooseneck Rounds,” “Knuckle,” “Heel Meat,” “Scotties,” “Trimmings 50,” “Trimmings 60,” “Trimmings 65,” “Trimmings 70,” “Trimmings 75,” “Trimmings 80,” “Trimmings 85,” or “Trimmings 90.”

The beef products bear the establishment number “EST. 6872” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacteria that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure. The very young, seniors and persons with weak immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.
