Swift Beef Company of Hyrum, Utah is recalling about 99,260 pounds of raw non-intact ground beef products because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 bacteria. No illnesses have been reported in connection with this issue.

The products were made on October 24, 2018. The recalled products are 2,000 pounds of bulk pallets of Swift Ground Beef 81/19 (81% lean) Fine Grind Combo with product code 42982; 8-10 pound plastic wrapped chubs of “blue ribbon BEEF” Ground Beef 81/19 (81% lean) Coarse Grind with the product code 42410; 8-10 pound plastic wrapped chubs of “blue ribbon BEEF” Ground Beef 93/07 (93% lean) Coarse Grind with product code 42413; 8-10 pound plastic wrapped chubs of “blue ribbon BEEF” Ground Beef 85/15 (85% lean) Coarse Grind bearing product code 42415; and 8-10 pound plastic wrapped chubs of “blue ribbon BEEF” Ground Beef 73/27 (73% lean) Coarse Grind with the product code 42510. All of these products have the establishment number “EST. 628” inside the USADA mark of inspection. They were shipped to distributors for further processing in California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington state.

A sample of the beef at one of those distributors tested positive for E. coli O157:H7 and the USDA visited the Swift Beef Company. FSIS confirmed that the Swift Beef Company was the sole source supplier fore those ground beef products.

If you purchased any of these ground beef products, don’t eat them. Throw them away in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the store where you bought them for a full refund.

FSIS is conducting retail effectiveness checks to make sure that the firm is notifying customers of the recall. The retail distribution list may be posted when it is confirmed.
