Illinois Firm Recalls Ground Beef Over E. Coli Contamination

May 23, 2019 – Aurora Packing Company, Inc., a North Aurora, Illinois-based company, is recalling more than 60,000 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli 0157:H7, a potentially deadly foodborne pathogen, the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) reported on Wednesday.

The recalled beef was packaged on April 19, 2019, FSIS said. All of the recalled meats bear the establishment number “Est. 788” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were distributed nationwide for further distribution and processing, FSIS said.

What’s the problem?

The potential contamination was noted during routine inspection activities by the FSIS. To date, there have been no E. coli infections or other adverse events associated with the recalled meat, the agency said.

Most people with an E. coli infection experience symptoms including dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days after exposure to the offending product, according to the Mayo Clinic. While most otherwise healthy adults recover within a week, some develop a life-threatening form of kidney failure known as hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Symptoms of HUS include easy bruising, light pallor and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek immediate medical care.

FSIS is concerned that some of the meat affected by Wednesday’s recall may be in institutional facility freezers. Institutions who have purchased these products are urged not to use them, the agency said. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund.
