The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Groupe Colabor are updating the recall of ground veal for E. coli O157:NM to include ground beef products. These products were identified during the CFIA’s food safety investigation. No illnesses have been reported to date.

Also recalled is Viandes Lauzon Lean Ground Beef in 2 x 2.5 kg packages, with code 30/04/14 and Item # 33355. Finally, Viandes Lauzon Medium Ground Beef is recalled, in 2 x 2.5 kg. packages.

If you purchased this product, return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Foods contaminated with E. coli O157 bacteria will not look, taste, or smell spoiled. But this pathogenic bacteria can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and watery and bloody diarrhea. Some who are sickened with this bacteria can develop hemolytic uremic syndrome and have permanent kidney damage.
