These American Foods ground beef products all have the establishment number EST. 18076 stamped inside the USDA mark of inspection. The ground beef was shipped to distributors in the states of Georgia, Michigan, and Ohio.

A sample collected by a state public health partner tested positive for the presence of E. coli O103, and that triggered the recall. You can see pictures of the recalled products at the USDA web site.

Anyone who has purchased this product should not sell or consume it. You can throw it away in a secure trash can with a tight fitting lid, or you can take the ground beef back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

Clinical laboratories do not test for non-O157 STEC because it’s harder to identify than E. coli O157:H7. If you are ill with the symptoms of a STEC infection after eating this product, which include bloody diarrhea and severe stomach cramps, see your doctor and tell him or her that you ate this ground beef.

The USDA is conducted recall effectiveness checks to make sure that the firm is notifying its customers about this recall. The retail distribution list for this item will be posted on the FSIS website when available.
