Gold Medal Packing of New York is recalling about 4,607 pounds of boneless veal products for possible E. coli O26 and O45 contamination. Those bacteria can cause serious illness. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the consumption of these products.
The veal trim and top bottom sirloin products were produced and packaged on August 16, 2016 and October 25, 2016. They include 60 pound boxes containing “Boneless Veal,” and 2,387 pound bin containing top bottom sirloin. They have the establishment number “EST. 17965” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The boneless veal was shipped to a warehouse in California, and the top bottom sirloin was shipped to distributors in Pennsylvania. FSIS and the company are concerned that some of these products may be in consumer’s freezers.
If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them, even if you plan to cook them. Throw them away in a sealed or double bagged package or take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.
