May 23, 2019 — Aurora Packing Co., Inc., of North Aurora, Illinois, has announced a recall for approximately 62,000 pounds of raw beef items that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.
The raw beef products are Aurora Angus bone-in beef and boneless beef, including items such as short ribs, rib finger meat, chuck, ribeye, brisket, skirt, shoulder, and neck bones.
The beef may be contaminated with the E. coli O157:H7 strain, which is a potentially deadly bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning.
Many people suffer dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps for about a week, but some suffer a life-threatening type of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS).
Consumers can identify the recalled beef with establishment number “EST. 788” in the USDA mark of inspection. They were packaged on April 19, 2019 and shipped nationwide for distribution and processing.
The potential risk of E. coli contamination was discovered after random sample testing by the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service.
No confirmed reports of illnesses have been linked to recalled beef.
In March 2019, Aurora Packing Company also recalled approximately 5,000 pounds of beef heel and beef chuck tender items that may be contaminated with E. coli.
