Ground Beef Recall: More Than 167,000 Pounds of Meat May Contain E. COLI

A Nebraska meat supply company is recalling more than 167,000 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli.

E.coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps and dehydration without two to eight days of exposure. While some people recover within a week, others can develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome and is common for children under 5 years old and the elderly.

According to the USDA, the ground beef items were produced at All American Meats, Inc. in Omaha and shipped to retail locations nationwide. The problem was discovered on October 30th when a sample tested positive for E. coli. The USDA says there have not yet been any sicknesses linked to the meat.

The meat was sold in 60-pound and 80-pound packages. It was produced on October 16 and shipped and sold to retailers nationwide. The sell-by date for all the meat being recalled is November 3 and the USDA inspection stamp number is 204020.

The USDA is concerned that some people who bought that meat, may have put it in their freezers and not realized it’s been recalled. Those who did buy this product should throw it away or return it to the place where they bought it.

The recall affects the following products:

  • 80-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef 80% Lean 20% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 62100.
