80,000 pounds of ground beef recalled
Manning Beef, LLC, a Pico Rivera, Calif. establishment, is voluntarily recalling approximately 80,000 pounds of beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
The products are subject to recall include combo bins of BroPack Inc and Paso Prime Beef Manufacturing Trimmings "65/35, 50/50 or 85/15" produced on Sept. 23, 2011, as well as 30- and 60-pound boxes of primal cuts, subprimal cuts and boxed beef produced on Sept. 23, 2011.
The establishment is recalling a variety of beef primal and subprimal cuts (such as top round and tri tip) and manufacturing trimmings due, in part, to insanitary conditions as reflected by an unusually high number of confirmed positive E. coli O157:H7 test results conducted by the establishment on the manufacturing trimmings. FSIS and the company are not aware of any illnesses in association with these products.
Each box bears "EST. # 934" on the product label. These beef products were produced on Sept. 23 and were shipped to retail establishments and food service centers in Ariz. and Calif. and to another federally regulated establishment in Neb. These products were destined for further processing and will likely not bear "EST. 934" on products available for direct consumer purchase.
