New Jersey firm recalls beef due to E. coli

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New Jersey-based meat processor Topps Meat Company LLC is voluntarily recalling 331,582 pounds (150 metric tons) of frozen ground beef products that may be contaminated with the potentially deadly E. coli bacteria, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Tuesday.

"All of the products involved have 2008 sell-by dates of June 22, July 12 or July 23."

yeah, baby!

"The ground beef products recalled were shipped to food service institutions in the New York city area and to retailers across the United States, the USDA said."

while some folks might have the patties in their freezer, i'm guessing the food service folks served it up some time ago . . . .

      Makes you think twice about eating out
                 

yeah, there was a frying and grating cheese recall yesterday. i'm guessing that was food service also. i just scored a couple of pounds of aged cheddar from upstate. must say, avoiding grocery stores and buying local/direct sure keeps the stress and ick factor down for me. i'm not too keen on cheese that needs to be quarantined.

? gypsy, no I did not notice that, but it does not surprise me.? ?I have not shopped or walked in WM in 5-6 years.? If I see the word WM I look right over it.

? ?Only reason I posted list of stores : in case anybody reading this may shop in those stores, since they have widened recall.


Glad you posted it, because I would have it you hadn't. I noticed the article I read this morning didn't bother to list the stores that carry Topps. After seeing the list I wasn't surprised they had omitted them. I don't know if the Topps logo is on all the products so it is helpful to see the names of the stores. JMO

if you go to the topps link above, to the left you can see their food service and retail products. for some reason i thought they also did a house brand for krogers (from one of the earlier recall notices) i could be wrong, but i would ask questions about meat in stores if you are unsure of it's source. we've had more than one beef recall in the area recently.

NBC Nightly News mentioned the expanded meat recall tonight - also mentioned other recalls - salads, toys, toothpaste and other foods - but did not say ANYTHING about all the pet food recalls!

Why is the media so against talking about the largest pet food recall in history???

I think it is becuase pet food companies put on a LOT of ads on TV and a network that relies on regular big-paying ads will be very hesitant to annoy those big-paying pet food adertisments.

Well just wait until these large pet food companies realize that they are losing mega bucks from the no sales of their garbage they call pet food!

The stores are still buying up the garbage so the makers of that garbage haven't felt the pinch yet, but when they do - all "H E  double L" will break lose!

So glad I do not buy ground beef. When the first recall was announced (yrs ago) I stopped buying it for fear that it would make me or my family ill at some point. Now only buy the grass fed, non-hormone, non-antibiotic ground from Whole Foods if I want to have it and that might be once every couple of years. Still very leery of ground anything from years ago and the recalls just keep coming and coming for this type of meat.

Just saw on CNN that Topps is shutting down.

"Topps Meat Co. on Friday said it was closing its business, six days after it was forced to issue the second-largest beef recall in U.S. history and 67 years after it first opened its doors."

"ground from Whole Foods "

make sure they tell you where it's from!! your best bet the next time you get the urge is to pick a nice cut of meat and have them grind it or grind it yourself.    Wink

There are more choices than ever...Find a Rancher tat sells thier own and ask where it is processed and why they chose the place they did....

We personally ave our meat processed at a USDA Inspected plant. The couple that own it have been Butcher Shop owners for 40 years ad not once had a recall.....Very clean and very thorough,

We are not the only ones doing this, you should be able to find smeone locally,
