Recalled Frozen Beef Due To Possible E. Coli Contamination

Recalled Frozen Beef: The most recent beef recall involves nearly 4,000 pounds of frozen beef products and is one of several to reach the market in recent months. Raw frozen diced beef products from Morasch Meats Inc. were recalled on December 22 due to possible E. coli contamination, following recalls of raw ground beef products from Tyson Foods Inc., a supplier to H-E-B, in November, and some 20,000 pounds of frozen beef products from Valley International Cold Storage Acquisition, LLC, a supplier to H-E-B in September.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture informed the public that 3,930 pounds of the product in question had been recalled. All of the raw frozen diced beef that was recalled was manufactured on August 24, 2022, and sent to distributors in Oregon for onward distribution to restaurants and other institutional customers. These diced beef products were offered in 30-pound boxes, each of which contained three 10-pound vacuum-sealed transparent plastic bags.

There is a case label reading “BEEF DICED 3/10# BAGS,” a case code of FM010152, a lot number of 082422, and a date of 8/24/2022 on the recalled product’s packaging. The product with “EST. 4102” inside the USDA mark of inspection has been recalled.

Since the FSIS evaluated testing data indicating the product tested positive for Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7, the Portland, Oregon facility decided to conduct a recall. The bacterium Escherichia coli, sometimes known as simply “E. coli,” is ubiquitous, showing up everywhere from the soil to the guts of humans and animals. Some strains are quite safe, while others can cause serious illness.

Johns Hopkins Medicine identifies E. coli O157:H7 as the most prevalent human-infecting strain of this bacteria. Dehydration, bloody diarrhea, and stomach cramps are some of the symptoms that may manifest themselves anywhere from two to eight days after initial contact with the bacterium. The majority of individuals get better within a week, but certain diseases are more severe and linger longer. Kidney failure, also known as a hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), can occur in some persons.

As of the recall notice’s publication on the 22nd of December, no illnesses were known to be associated with the raw frozen diced beef items that were recalled. However, the FSIS recommended that the items be discarded or returned to the store of purchase because of the potential health risk they offer.

According to the FSIS, there’s a chance the items are still in restaurants’ and other businesses’ freezers, so “restaurants and institutions are warned not to serve these products.” The FSIS also urged people to properly cook their raw meat products, such as limiting themselves to beef that has been diced and cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
