Beef trim that could possibly be ground up and used for beef patties are being recalled because it could be adulterated, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration .
Colorado Meat Packers is recalling approximately 2,234 pounds of beef trim because it was improperly labeled, and possibly adulterated, when it entered the market, according to the FDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The products include in the recall are: 2,234 lbs. Combo Bin of All Beef Trimmings.
"The bin bears the establishment number "EST. 17086" inside the USDA marks of inspection can be identified by the case code "9002 N." The ground beef trim was produced on December 2, 2010 and sent to a federal establishment in Colorado for further processing without testing. All testing conducted on other trim produced on the same day from the same source materials was negative for E. coli O157:H7," according to the FDA.
So far, no illnesses have been reported in connection to the recall.
As a North Charleston foodborne illness attorney , I urge consumers to seek medical attention if they have food poisoning symptoms. Beef trim is often ground into hamburger patties, which could pose a poisoning risk if they are not cooked thoroughly.
