New Jersey Firm Expands Recall of Ground Beef Products Due To Possible Adulteration
Editor's Note: This recall release is being reissued to expand the January 10 recall to include an undetermined amount of additional ground beef products.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14, 2011 - One Great Burger, an Elizabeth, N.J., establishment, is expanding its Jan. 10, 2011 recall to include an undetermined amount of additional ground beef products that may have become spoiled, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
As noted in the original release, the products subject to this recall are adulterated because the establishment's food safety plan was inadequate to produce safe product. In a continued investigation of the Jan. 10, 2011 recall, FSIS became aware of additional consumer complaints of discoloration and off-odors in the products. FSIS has determined that this ground beef is also adulterated and should not be consumed. There have been no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a physician.
The following products are additionally subject to recall:
- 4 lbs. boxes of "Winn Dixie beef patty 100% BEEF." Each box contains 16 frozen patties weighing ¼ lb. each.
Each box bears establishment number "EST. 34575" within the USDA mark of inspection. The products have "Sell by" dates of "01/01/11" through "02/27/11" printed on the bottom of each box, followed by the lot code "204110." Similar products with later "Sell by" dates are not subject to this recall. The products were produced between April 2010 and May 2010 and were distributed to grocery stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi. While the products listed above have been unavailable for purchase since May 2010, consumers who may have purchased them are urged to remove them from their freezers and discard them.
One Great Burger is recalling an additional 21,400 pounds of the following product, which was listed in the Jan. 10, 2011 release:
- 20 lbs. boxes of "ONEGREAT HAMBURGERS" with "ITEM #02044" labeled on the front as well as "KEEP FROZEN."
Each box bears establishment number "EST. 34575" within the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced between Jan. 2010 and May 2010 and contain "PACKED ON" dates ranging from July 2010 to Nov. 2010. The products were distributed to institutions nationwide.
