A Michigan firm has recalled 129,000 pounds of beef products, due to possible contamination with E.coli. Some of this beef was shipped to food service distribution centers and “Marketplace” stores in Kansas.
The beef products were produced between March 1 and April 30, 2007. Included are boxes of mechanically tenderized steaks and ground beef of varying weights. Labels on the boxes bear the establishment number “Est. 1947A” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a date code (on the top right corner of the label) between “060” and “120.” Only products with those date codes are subject to recall. Each box also bears a net weight declaration and the message “Manufactured for Gordon Food Service” or “Distributed by Gordon Food Service.”
