Boneless Veal Products Recalled For Multiple Strains Of E. Coli

On August 9, a New York company recalled approximately 12,600 pounds of boneless veal products due to potential contamination with various E. Coli strains. New York Mills' United Processing LLC recalled the veal products because they may be tainted with E. Coli 0145, E. Coli 045, or E. Coli 0157:H7, the most common strain of E. Coli bacteria. The FSIS (Food Safety and Inspection Service) announced that 60 lb. boxes of the products were involved in the recall. These products were produced in June of this year, then shipped for further processing to wholesalers in California and New York. The boneless veal products subject to the recall have an establishment number of M-27450 on a generic box label inside the USDA mark of inspection. According to the USDA website, FSIS discovered the problem in the course of inspection program personnel review. United Processing sampled the veal products per their own food safety program, however the products were shipped into commerce unintentionally. While no illnesses have been reported in relation to the veal products, E. Coli is a bacteria that can result in food poisoning, something that is not usually serious with healthy individuals, but can be deadly in young children, the elderly, and individuals with a compromised immune system. Hopefully the product has not been further distributed from the California and New York wholesalers; if so, let's hope all involved have reliable traceability systems in place.
