Stampede Meat Recalls Beef For Possible Salmonella Contamination

SMI Holdings, doing business as Stampede Meat of Illinois, is recalling about 484,800 pounds of beef products because they may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. The beef incorporated a non-meat ingredient, Au Jus Seasoning, that tested positive for the pathogenic bacteria. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

The frozen raw beef sirloin steaks were produced on dates ranging from February 18, 2018 through March 14, 2018. They include cases containing 64 6-ounce vacuum-packed packages of “USDA Select or Higher Boneless Beef Top Sirloin Steaks,” (item #5404) with lot codes ranging from 05018 to 07318 (inclusive) and “Best By” dates from February 19, 2019 to March 14, 2019 (inclusive). The second recalled product is cases containing 64 8-ounce vacuum-packed packages of “USDA Select or Higher Boneless Beef Top Sirloin Steaks,” (item #5419) with lot codes ranging from 05018 to 07318 (inclusive) and “Best By” dates from February 19, 2019 to March 14, 2019 (inclusive). The products have the establishment num per “EST. 19113” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors, which then sent them to restaurants nationwide.

Stampede Meat was notified by their supplier about a voluntarily seasoning recall that was based on Salmonella contamination. This product was used in a marinade that is injected into the steaks. If the steaks are then cooked to less than well done, some bacteria could survive and make someone sick.

The restaurants cook and prepare the food for customers, who may take the product home as leftovers. Some of the product may be frozen in home freezers. If you have purchased these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed package so other people and animals can’t get at them.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include abdominal pain and cramps, nausea, vomiting, a fever, and diarrhea that may be bloody. If you have been experiencing these symptoms and ate this product, see your doctor.
