The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that K2D Foods, doing business as (DBA) Colorado Premium Foods (Carrolton, GA) is recalling ~113,424 pounds of raw ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O103. The raw ground beef items were produced on March 26, March 29, April 2, April 5, April 10, and April 12, 2019. These items were shipped to distributors in Port Orange, FL. and Norcross, GA for further distribution to restaurants. Unopened, intact ground beef collected as part of the ongoing investigation from a restaurant location, where multiple case-patients reported dining, tested positive for E. coli O103. At this time, there is no definitive link between this positive product and the ongoing E. coli O103 outbreak. Further traceback and product analysis continue to determine if the recalled products are related to the E. coli O103 outbreak. Many clinical laboratories do not test for non-O157 STEC, such as O103 because it is harder to identify than STEC O157:H7. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2019/recall-047-2019-release
