More than 3,400 pounds of meat recalled including in Pennsylvania

A meat-packing company based in Kansas has recalled more than 3,400 pounds of boneless beef chuck, some of which was sold in Pennsylvania, over concerns it may be contaminated with E. coli.

A routine sample of the meat found the presence of E coli. According to the United State Department of Agriculture, the boneless beef chuck items were packed on Feb. 16.  The items were sold and shipped to distributors, federal establishments, retail locations, and wholesale locations, which includes hotels, restaurants, and institutions, in Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

What to look for: Various weights corrugated boxes containing “Elkhorn Valley Pride Angus Beef 61226 BEEF CHUCK 2PC BNLS; Packed on 2/16/23.” The complete list of serial numbers and box count numbers that are subject to recall can be found here.

Anyone who has bought these products should throw them out or return to the place of purchase.

So far, there have been no confirmed reports of illness from the products. E. coli causes diarrhea, often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome. HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.
