After positive E Coli test, thousands of pounds of beef recalled in Texas

Mar 21, 2017


Almost 75,000 pounds of beef products have been pulled from store shelves in Texas, reports KFDA.

The recall occurred after reports of E Coli in boneless beef products were received from Waco’s H & B Packing.

The company says the recall includes items in 60 lb. boxes and multiple combo bins. The recall was initiated after the State of Texas’s Meat Safety Assurance Unit Food Safety and Inspection Service found a positive E Coli sample and notified the Food Safety and Inspection Service. It appears the regulators caught the problem in time, as there have not been any reports of E Coli illness or death.

The possibly tainted items ca be found in cases with codes reading 69029, with a production date of 3/6/17. The mark of inspection on the questionable items will also read "EST. M13054."

If it turns out you’ve purchased these products, do not to use them. Instead, they should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
