The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 772” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were shipped for hotel, restaurant and institutional use in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
The problem was discovered June 30 when the firm received a positive result for E. coli as part of its in-house sampling program. Some products made from the same source material as the positive sample were shipped into commerce.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.
E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure to the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.
