Yikes! Just before the summer grillin' Memorial Day Holiday!!! There's been a beef recall and we're talking the good stuff...like brisket, short ribs!!! An Illinois beef packing company has recalled 62,112 pounds of whole cuts of beef, such as steaks, roasts, and ribs, because they might be contaminated with E. coli.
But the FSIS is still investigating where the recalled raw beef products have ended up. And while the agency can’t yet trace every location the product was sent to, it appears that much of the beef was sold to institutions. That means that much of the potentially contaminated meat may not have ended up in grocery stores or restaurants.
The beef comes from Aurora Packing, a processing facility based in North Aurora, Ill., and recalled products bear the label “EST. 788” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
