FSIS announced tonight the first E. coli O157:H7 recall of 2008.  In 2007 there were at least 21 recalls, totaling over 33,00,000 pounds of meat.  Now Rochester Meat Company, a Rochester, Minnesota firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 188,000 pounds of ground beef products because the meat resulted in five illnesses in Wisconsin and one illness in California due to contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.  We believe that a National Restaurant Chain may be involved.

The ground beef products subject to recall were produced on Oct. 30, 2007, and Nov. 6, 2007. The products subject to recall were shipped to distributors nationwide for further distribution to restaurants and food service institutions. These products were not available for purchase by consumers in retail establishments.

Each box bears the establishment number “Est. 8999” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The following products are subject to recall:

* 10-pound boxes of “SEASONED BEEF BULK” bearing a product number of “09068,” as well as an eight-digit lot number beginning with “730314.”

* 10-pound boxes of “100% PURE BEEF PATTIES” bearing a product number of “09071,” as well as an eight-digit a lot number beginning with “731013.”

* 15-pound boxes of “CHEYENNE SEASONED BEEF PATTIES” bearing a product number of “12017” or “12018,” as well as an eight-digit lot number beginning with “730314.”

* 10-, 15- and 20-pound boxes of “100% PURE GROUND BEEF PATTIES” bearing a product number of “1340,” “127533,” “135724,” “158843” or “158852,” as well as an eight-digit lot number beginning with “731013” or “731014.”
* 10-pound boxes of “100% PURE GROUND CHUCK BEEF PATTIES” bearing a product number of “158898,” as well as an eight-digit lot number beginning with “731014.”

* 10-, 15- and 25-pound boxes of “100% PURE GROUND BEEF CHUCK PATTIES” bearing a product number of “85227,” “227806,” “407823,” “407830,” “407840,” “417841” or “437531,” as well as an eight-digit lot number beginning with “730314,” “731013,” or “731014.”

* 10-pound boxes of “OUR HOMESTYLE 100% PURE GROUND BEEF PATTIES” bearing a product number of “208033,” as well as an eight-digit lot number beginning with “731014.”

So glad do not buy ground anything unless the meat is a whole piece from Whole Foods and have them grind it (if I could afford the meat that is) for me. Ground anything is not very safe.

Klondike I tried an organic beef patty from Whole Foods a few weeks ago. Had a very hard time digesting the beef. Felt like it sat in my stomach for days. Had not eaten any beef in weeks so that might have had something to do with  it. Also let me know that I can't digest this type of meat and probably never could without it taking days to pass thru a person's system.

digestion of meat can be related to what that animal ate ... example : I am gluten intolerant ... One local store uses local beef suppliers asked about the beef since the sign says grain fed yet I wasnt ever sick after eating ... well they are grass and corn fed ... the other store gets the meat from the upper mid west again corn fed.... while some stores cant tell me but my stomach does ( ie last night I bought meat at a big chain in a different town , OBVIOUSLY it is mixed grain feed cause my digestive tract didnt like it

Organic beef patties I tried were grass fed cows. Meat is hard for a lot of people to digest IMO-no matter what the animal may have been fed. No problems with chicken or turkey-just the beef.
