Ground Beef E.coli Recall: USDA Names Stores

A partial list of stores involved in the 1.8 million pound ground beef recall linked to an E.coli outbreak that has sickened at least 11 people in four states has been published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA FSIS). It’s a small list for a big recall, but the agency is not permitted to list restaurants, only retail stores, and the list may not yet include all locations.

Ground Beef on PaperSo far, here are the retail locations that are part of the recall. Gordon Food Service Marketplace Stores in FL, IL, IN, KY, MI, OH, PA, TN, and WI.; Surf N Turf Market in Sebring, Florida; Giorgio’s Italian Deli in Stuart, Florida;  M Sixty Six General Store in Orleans, Michigan and Buchtel Food Mart on Buchtel, Ohio.

Consumers who purchase meat at these stores should check their freezers. The recalled products have dates between “03 31 14” and “04 18 14” and the establishment number “EST. 2574B.” Anyone with these products in their freezers should throw them out.

When dining out, do not order rare hamburgers or accept entrees that appear to be undercooked. Cooking ground beef to an internal temperature of 160˚ F is the only way to kill dangerous bacteria.
