Canadian Ground Beef Recall Extends to U.S

This past week, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency recalled ground beef products after learning the meat may be contaminated with E. coli and now, a U.S distributor of ground beef has announced that some of the contaminated meat may have been sold in the United States.

The potentially contaminated ground beef was manufactured by XL Foods of Alberta, Canada and tested by the U.S. Department of Agriculture when entering the U.S. On Tuesday, US Foods issued a press release confirming E.coli was found and contacting consumers who purchased the contaminated beef.

Morasch Meats of Portland, OR and Cattleman’s (a US Foods brand), purchased the contaminated meat and then distributed it to retail locations. The agency reports that no illnesses have been linked to consumption of the recalled meat yet.

If you have purchased a product and suspect that the product poses health or safety hazards, contact Khorrami, LLP for a confidential consultation.
