Aurora Packing Recalls Beef Products For Possible E. coli

Aurora Packing Company of Illinois is recalling about 4,838 pounds of beef heel and chuck tender products because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 bacteria. No confirmed reports of illness have been received in association with this recall.

The products were produced and packed on February 27, 2019. These are the recalled products:

  • Varying catch weight cardboard box case packages containing bulk pieces of “AURORA ANGUS BEEF BONELESS BEEF – CHUCK TENDER” and case code 61150 marked on the label.
  • Varying catch weight cardboard box case packages containing bulk pieces of “BONELESS BEEF – HEEL MEAT” and case code 29970 on the label.
  • Varying catch weight cardboard box case packages containing bulk pieces of “BONELESS BEEF – HEEL MEAT” and case code 49970 stamped on the label.

These products have the establishment number “EST. 788” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped for institutional use in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. The problem was discovered during FSIS traceback activities after routine testing.

FSIS thinks that some of these beef products may be frozen in institutional facility freezers. Check your freezer; if you have these products, do not cook and serve them. Throw them away in a sealed garbage can, or return them to the place of purchase.
