Beef Recall Update

Last week I told you about yet another beef recall, and now I am here to tell you it has gone from bad to worse. Originally only 332,000 lbs of meat were recalled, but on Saturday, the Topps Meat Co. expanded its recall to include 21.7 million lbs of ground beef that may also be contaminated with e. Coli.

This Elizabeth, NJ based beef company's recall includes:

  • All Topps products with either a "sell by date" or "best if used by date" between Sept. 25, 2007 and Sept. 25, 2008. The date can be found on the package's back panel.
  • They also have a USDA establishment number of EST 9748.

The USDA suspended the grinding of raw products at the Topps plant after inspectors found inadequate safety measures there. Terrific.

So far three people have confirmed cases of e. Coli contamination and there are 22 other cases under investigation. Cases were found in Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Check out the full list of recalled products here.

I don't know about you, but a salad is looking really good about now.
