On 26 March, Aurora Packing Company Inc. made a beef recall which may be possibly contaminated by E. coli. Following this event, Advance Pierre Foods, Inc. has also issued the recall of around 20,373 pounds of all ready-to-eat beef patties. This batch of beef patties may contain extraneous materials which consist of soft purple plastic.
The infected meat consists of frozen flame-boiled beef patties which were produced on 30 November last year. These beef patties were packed in 14.06 pound cases. There are three bags with thirty patties in every bag and were labelled as
“CN Fully Cooked Flame broiled Beef Patties Caramel Color Added”.
The beef patties which have been recalled have a package code of 8334 and a case code of 155-525. Apart from that, they also feature an establishment number of EST. 2260E when checked inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The beef patties have already reached several food service locations all over the nation. Some of these locations also included schools, but the National School Lunch Program do not make use of these.
All the food service locations are instructed to check properly for the recalled beef patties. The products must be thrown immediately or returned to the seller. The beef recalled must not be consumed or served under any circumstances whatsoever.
