Ohio Farms Packing Recalls Veal for Possible E. coli

Ohio Farms Packing Company is recalling about 40,680 pounds of boneless veal products that may be contamianted with E. coli O103, according to the USDA. Also included in the recall is an undetermined amount of veal cutlets produced by the company and sold to food services. The cutlets were not sold to consumers. Companies that purchased products from Ohio Farms Packing Co. should contact the firm directly.

The boneless veal products were produced November 30, 2016 through February 3, 2017. They include 60 pound boxes of Atlantic Veal & Lamb Inc: Boneless Veal SF with product codes 511012, 511020, 511021, 511023, 511024, 511030, 511032, 511034, 511336, 511337, 511340, 511341, 511343, 511351, 511362, and 511365. Also recalled are 60 pound boxes of Atlantic Veal & Lamb LLC: Boneless Veal with product codes 507023, 507030, 507335, 507342, 507356, and 507358. These products have the establishment number “EST. 34569” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to distributors in Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Canada.

The Illinois State Department of Agriculture found a positive non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli sample. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products.

Many clinical labs do not test for non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli bacteria such as E. coli O103 because it is harder to identify. Most people infected with this bacteria develop bloody diarrhea and vomiting. Most recover within a week, but some can develop HUS and risk kidney failure.

FSIS and the company think that some product may be frozen in home freezers. If you purchased any of these products, do not use them, even if you plan to cook them. Throw them away in a sealed container or take them back to the store where you bought them for a full refund.
