==> For information about Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning), please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.
Many clinical laboratories do not test for non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (“STEC”), such as STEC O26 or O45, because they are harder to identify than STEC O157, a more typical strain of the bacteria. People can become ill from STECs from 2 to 8 days (average of 3 to 4 days) after consuming the organism.
==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure small children and pets can’t access the suspect food.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Veal Products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact Mr. Dave Anguzza, Operations Manager, at Gold Medal Packing Inc. at 1-315-337-1911, extension 3.
