Fresh and Frozen Raw Ground Beef Patties Recalled for Possible E. coli Contamination

Win Opportunity Knocks, doing business as Ottomanelli Wholesale Meats of St. Petersburg, Florida, is recalling about 6,020 pounds of fresh and frozen, raw ground beef products for possible E. coli O45, O103, and O145 contamination. The recall notice does not state whether or not any illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall.

These ground beef products were produced from June 18, 2018 through July 11, 2018. They include: 5-pound boxes of (20/4 ounce) frozen, raw “Packers Plus Patties” with  “Approved JUN 18 2018” through “Approved JUL 11 2018;”10-pound boxes of (8 ounce) frozen, raw “Debren Foods Inc. BEEF PATTIES” with “Approved JUN 18 2018” through “Approved JUL 11 2018;” and 10-pound boxes of (40/4 ounce) frozen, raw “Nu Vista Foods Group Inc. BEEF PATTIES” with “Approved JUN 18 2018” through “Approved JUL 11 2018.” Also recalled are 10-pound boxes of (40/4 ounce, 30/5 ounce, and 28/6-ounce) of frozen, raw “Ottomanelli Beef Patties” with  “Approved JUN 18 2018” through “Approved JUL 11 2018;” and 10 pound bulk bag of fresh raw “Beef Patty Mix Ottomanelli Wholesale Meats Inc.” with “Approved JUN 18 2018” through “Approved JUL 11 2018.”

These products have the establishment number “EST. 11167” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were distributed for institutional use in Florida. The products were tested by the establishment and found to be positive for E. coli under their sampling program.

FSIS is concerned that some of this product may be in institutions’ refrigerators or freezers. Institutions that have purchased these products are urged not to serve or sell them. The ground beef should be thrown away in sealed containers, or returned to the place of purchase.

These Shiga toxin-producing E. coli bacteria can cause serious illness, with symptoms of painful abdominal cramps and bloody diarrhea. Symptoms usually start two to eight days after exposure to the pathogenic bacteria.
