Interstate Meat Distributors of Oregon, is recalling about 14,805 pounds of ground beef and pork products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. No confirmed illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

These products were produced and packaged on February 10 and February 12, 2018. They include: 2.25-pound wrapped packages of fresh “ALL NATURAL EXTRA LEAN GROUND BEEF” with package code 04118 and 96% lean and 4% fat on the label; 2.25-pound wrapped packages of fresh “ALL NATURAL GROUND BEEF CHUCK” with package code 04118 and 80% lean and 20% fat on the label; 2.25-pound wrapped packages of fresh “GROUND BEEF AND PORK BLEND” with package code 04118 and  80% lean and 20% fat on the label; and 2.50-pound bags with 10 quarter pound frozen “BROTHERS CHOICE 85% LEAN ANGUS GROUND BEEF PATTIES” and package code 04318.

E. coli O1257:H7 is a dangerous pathogen that can cause serious illness and death. If these products are not fully cooked to a final internal temperature of 160°F, the bacteria could survive and make someone very sick. If you bought any of these products, do not eat them, even if you plan to cook them, because undercooked or cold spots could remain. Throw them away in a sealed package in a secure garbage receptacle, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The symptoms of an E. coli O157:H7 infection include severe and painful abdominal cramps, nausea, and diarrhea that is usually bloody. Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), can develop after this infection; that is a type of kidney failure.
