Two ground beef recalls last week

“Two new ground beef recalls were issued over the past week for nearly 300,000 pounds of beef distributed across the country. One batch is suspected of being contaminated with E. coli, which could potentially cause food poisoning, while the other recall was issued because metal clips were found in the ground beef.

On May 29, Holten Meat Inc., of Sauget, Illinois announced a recall of 241,000 pounds of ground beef after it was discovered that metal clips used in the packaging process were found in 20 lbs. cases shipped to various food service institutions.

On Monday, SP Provisions of Portland, Oregon recalled another 39,983 pounds of ground beef from their Cascade Natural Beef and SB Provisions brands after the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the USDA discovered E. coli contamination during testing.”
