National Beef Packing Company, a Dodge City, Kan., establishment, is recalling approximately 690 pounds of beef tongue root filet products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

The products subject to recall include 30-pound boxes of “National Beef” Beef Tongue Root Filet, Product Code “12753.” These products bear the establishment number “EST. 262” inside the USDA mark of inspection and include a pack date of “081913A.”

The products were produced on August 19, 2013, and were shipped to a distributor in Amarillo, Texas, for further processing. The problem was discovered through routine FSIS monitoring which confirmed a positive result for E. coli O157:H7. An investigation determined National Beef Packing Company was the sole supplier of the source materials used to produce the positive product.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.
