Pennsylvania Firm Has Recalled Ground Beef

Souderton, PA (SafetyAlerts) - U.S. Department of Agriculture?s Food Safety and Inspection Service said that Moyer Packing Company has recalled approximately 203,600 pounds of fresh ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

The ground beef products being recalled are 10-lb. chubs packed in 60-lb. cases. The cases are labeled:

"PURE GROUND BEEF 93 COARSE" bearing the code "1930316100;"
"PURE GROUND BEEF CHUCK COARSE" bearing the code "1940056100;"
"PURE GROUND BEEF ROUND X 85" bearing the code "1941116100;"
"PURE GROUND BEEF 75 COARSE" bearing the code "1910216100;"
"PURE GROUND BEEF 81 COARSE" bearing the code "1920116100;"
"PURE GROUND BEEF 91 COARSE" bearing the code "1930146100;"
"PURE GROUND BEEF SIRLOIN X 90" bearing the code "1942116100;"
"PURE GROUND BEEF SIRLOIN COARSE" bearing the code "1942016100;"
"PURE GROUND BEEF 91 COARSE" bearing the code "1930116100;" and,
"PURE GROUND BEEF 73 COARSE GU" bearing the code "1910016110."
Also being recalled are 10 lb. chubs packed in 40-lb. cases.

The cases are labeled:

"PURE GROUND BEEF X SIRLOIN FINE" bearing the code "1942164100;"
All cases and individual chubs of the product being recalled bear the date "AUG3102" and the establishment code "EST. 1311" inside the USDA seal of inspection.


The ground beef products were produced on Aug. 31. The products were distributed to a manufacturer in Pennsylvania and retail distributors in Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. The products involved in the recall may have been reground and repackaged in retail stores.

"Because of the potential for foodborne illness, we want consumers to be aware of the recall," said Dr. Garry L. McKee, FSIS administrator. "Purchasers of ground beef may wish to ask retailers if ground beef at their stores was produced with any of the recalled product."

The voluntary recall was initiated after FSIS notified Moyer Packing Company of a positive E. coli O157:H7 result at an establishment it supplied.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacteria that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. The very young, seniors and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.

FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician.

Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Kelly Romaniello, director of company relations, Moyer Packing Company, at (215) 723-5559. Media with questions may contact David Bartlett, vice president, Rowan and Blewitt Inc., consulting firm, at (703) 234-4428.
