Aurora Packing Recalls Beef For Possible E. coli O157:H7

Aurora Packing of North Aurora, Illinois is recalling about 62,112 pounds of raw beef products because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. There have been no confirmed reports of illnesses due to the consumption of these products.

The Aurora Packing raw beef products were packaged on April 19, 2019. FSIS has posted a list of products that are recalled. They include Angus Chuck Tenders, Beef Neck Bones, Chuck Arm, Chuck Flap Meat, Short Rib, Ribeye, Skirt, and Back Rib, among other. The codes on the product are also included on that list. These products all have the establishment number “EST. 788” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These beef products were shipped nationwide for further distribution and processing.

The possible contamination was discovered during traceback activities in response to random sampling by FSIS. FSIS is concerned that these products may be in institutional facility freezers. Any institution that has purchased these items are urged not to use them. Throw the beef away in a secure garbage can, or return to the place of purchase for a refund.

The symptoms of an E. coli infection include dehydration, severe and painful abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that is typically bloody and watery. These symptoms usually begin 2 to 8 days after exposure. Anyone who is experiencing these symptoms should see a doctor immediately.

FSIS is conducting retail effectiveness checks to make sure that these products are no longer available to consumers. If and when it is available, the retail distribution list will be posted on the FSIS website.
