Some of more than 50,000 pounds of recalled beef is in Indiana stores.
A Kansas beef-packing company has recalled the beef that may be contaminated with E. coli. National Beef Packing Company recalled the beef that was produced on July 18th.
The beef was shipped with an establishment number of “EST.208A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. IGA stores and Cash Saver stores are on the list included in the recall. Indiana has at least 60 IGA stores and three Cash Saver stores.
THE USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall this week, but no illnesses have been reported.
The USDA says the problem was discovered through monitoring. E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in severe cases, kidney failure. Very young people, seniors and people with weak immune systems are most susceptible to the illness.
