Warning as Greater Omaha Packing meat processor recalls 300k pounds of raw beef ‘contaminated with E.coli’

BAD BACTERIA

A MEAT processor has issued an urgent warning to consumers over nearly 300,000 pounds of raw beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Greater Omaha Packing’s recall on Thursday.

Packages of the meat are understood to have been distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Nebraska.

The beef products were intended to be used in packages of ground beef.

They were produced on July 13 and bear establishment number “EST. 960A” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The contamination was discovered when FSIS collected a routine product sample that confirmed positive for the presence of E. coli, officials said.

Officials have said it is a "Class I" recall.

That means it is a "situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products, according to a USDA news release.

E. coli, a bacteria found in fecal matter, can be particularly dangerous to infants, young children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems.
