United Processing Recalls Veal for Three E. coli Bacteria

United Processing LLC of New York is recalling about 12,600 pounds of boneless veal products because they may be contaminated with three bacteria: E. coli O157:H7, E. coli O145 and E. coli O45. No illnesses have been reported to date in association with the consumption of these products.

RecallThe product is 60 pound boxes of boneless veal. The products recalled have the establishment number “M-27450” inside the USDA mark of inspection on a generic box label. The veal was produced on June 17, 18, 24, 28, and 29, 2013 and distributed to wholesalers in New York and California for further processing.

Many clinical laboratories do not test for the non-O157 Shigatoxin-producing (STEC) E. coli bacteria such as O26, O103, O45, O111, O121 or O145 because it is harder to identify. Infections from all of these bacteria result in dehydration, bloody diarrhea, and abdominal cramps that develop two to eight days after exposure. Some people sickened with this bacteria develop hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) that can destroy the kidneys.

The problem was noticed during inspection program personnel review. The firm sampled the product, and inadvertently shipped the product into commerce.  For questions and more information, contact the company’s plant manager Jon Gorea at 315-768-7100 ext. 228.
