New Recall: 1 Million Pounds of Ground Beef

ground beef

Modesto, Calif.-based Valley Meat Co. is recalling approximately 1 million pounds of frozen ground beef patties and bulk ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli.

This is a U.S. Department of Agriculture Class 1 recall, which indicates “a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

Affected products are listed here. At press time, seven individuals have become ill.

As I reported in October, eating ground beef is still considered a “gamble.”
