Armour Dried Beef Recalled For Possible Bacterial Contamination

Pinnacle Foods of Iowa is recalling about 32,479 pounds of heat-treated, shelf-stable Armour dried beef products because of a processing deviation that may have led to Staphylococcal enterotoxin and clostridial toxin contamination. There have been no confirmed ports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products.

The items were produced on January 2, 2018 and April 9, 2018. They have a shelf life of three years. The recalled products include: 2.25 ounce glass jars containing “ARMOUR GROUND & FORMED SLICED Dried Beef” with best by dates JAN-07-21, JAN-08-21, JAN-09-21, JAN-10-21, JAN-11-21, APR-15-21, APR-16-21, APR-17-21, APR-18-21 and APR-19-21 and lot codes 0707011Y11, 0708011Y11, 0709011Y11, 0710011Y11, 0711011Y11, 0715041Y11, 0716041Y11, 0717041Y11, 0718041Y11 and 0719041Y11 . Also recalled is 4.5 ounce glass jars containing “ARMOUR GROUND & FORMED SLICED Dried Beef” with best by dates JAN-23-21, JAN-24-21, JAN-25-21 and APR-22-21 and lot codes 0723011Y11, 0724011Y11, 0725011Y11 and 0722041YW1. These products have the establishment number “EST. 2AD” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered on April 27, 2018 by an Enforcement Investigator and Analysis Officer (EIAO) while conducting a food safety assessment at the establishment. Staphylococcus toxin can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Clostridial toxin could be from C.  botulinum, C. difficile, or any other species. Those toxins can cause diarrhea or may cause paralysis, depending on the specific species of the bacteria.

If you purchased these products, do not eat them, even if you plan to heat them. Some of these toxins may be impervious to heat. Throw them away in a sealed or double wrapped container in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.
