Days ahead of Memorial Day weekend, more than 62,000 pounds of raw beef products are being recalled because they may be contaminated with E. coli.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Wednesday that Aurora Packing Co. Inc., of North Aurora, Illinois, is recalling select products packaged on April 19.
The products may be contaminated with the strain of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and have an establishment number “EST. 788” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped nationwide for further distribution and processing, according to the recall notice.
There are multiple cuts of beef included in the recall, including short ribs, ribeyes and briskets, according to a list of products on the government site.
