Swift Beef Company Recalls Ground Beef Products due to E. coli O157:H7
The Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Swift Beef Co., Hyrum, Utah recalled approximately 99,260 pounds of raw non-intact ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. The bulk ground beef was produced on Oct. 24, 2018. These items were shipped to retail distributors for further processing and food service distributors for institutional use in locations in California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. The problem was discovered on November 15, 2018, when FSIS visited Swift Beef Company in response to an FSIS ground beef sample that was collected at a further processing establishment and was confirmed positive for E. coli O157:H7. FSIS confirmed that Swift Beef Company was the sole source supplier for the ground beef products. That affected product was recalled on Nov. 16. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. It’s the second-largest recall since October for Swiss Beef parent company JBS Tolleson, which recalled 6.6 million pounds of ground beef due to Salmonella in October. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2018/recall-114-2018-release
