Concerns over <"https://www.yourlawyer.com/topics/overview/e_coli_O157_H7">E. coli O157:H7 contamination have prompted Huntington Meat Packing Inc. of Montebello, California to recall 864,000 lbs of beef products.

The problem was discovered during a Food Safety Assessment (FSA) by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The FSA led to the determination that a further investigation of establishment records was warranted. The investigation is ongoing.

The following products, consisting of all ground beef products produced by the plant from January 5, 2010 to January 15, 2010, are subject to recall:

• 40 lb. boxes of “Huntington Meats Ground Beef”

• 40 lb. boxes of “HUNTINGTON MEAT PKG. INC. BEEF GROUND FOR FURTHER PROCESSING”

• 40 lb. boxes of “BEEF BURRITO FILLING MIX”

• 10 lb. boxes of “IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY”

• 20 lb. boxes of “IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY”

• 10 lb. boxes of “El Rancho MEAT & PROVISION ALL BEEF PATTIES”

Each box bears the establishment number “EST. 17967” inside the USDA mark of inspection on a label. The products were produced between January 5, 2010, and January 15, 2010, and were shipped to distribution centers, restaurants, and hotels within the State of California.

Also included in the recall are these products produced from February 19, 2008 to May 15, 2008:

• 40 lb. boxes of “Huntington Meats Ground Beef”

• 40 lb. boxes of ” HUNTINGTON MEAT PKG. INC. BEEF GROUND FOR FURTHER PROCESSING”

• 40 lb. boxes of “BEEF BURRITO FILLING MIX”

• 10 lb. boxes of “IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY”

• 20 lb. boxes of “IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY”

• 10 lb. boxes of “El Rancho MEAT & PROVISION ALL BEEF PATTIES”

Each box bears the establishment number “EST. 17967” inside the USDA mark of inspection on a label. The products were produced between February 19, 2008, and May 15, 2008, and were shipped to distribution centers, restaurants, and hotels within the State of California.

While these products are normally used fresh, the establishment is taking this action out of concern that some product may still be frozen and in commerce.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium 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. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a physician.
