According to the USDA, Ohio Farms Packing has recalled approximately 40,680 pounds of Boneless Veal Products that may be contaminated with E. coli O103, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) announced today. Also included in the recall is an undetermined amount of Veal Cutlets produced by Ohio Farms Packing Co. Ltd.
All of the Cutlets were sold to food services; none of this product was sold directly to consumers. Companies that purchase products from Ohio Farms Packing Co. Ltd. should contact the firm directly to determine whether or not the product they have purchased is subject to the recall.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 34569” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors in Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Canada.
The problem was discovered when FSIS was notified by the Illinois State Department of Agriculture about a positive non-0157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli sample.
==> For information about E. Coli Poisoning, please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.
==> 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 and Lamb, 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.
Many clinical laboratories do not test for non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (“STEC”), such as STEC O103 because it is harder to identify than STEC O157, the more commonly diagnosed form. People can become ill from STECs ranging from two (2) to eight (8) days (average of three (3) to four (4) days) after consuming the organism.
Most people infected with STEC O103 develop Diarrhea (often bloody) and vomiting. Some illnesses last longer and can be more severe. Infection is usually diagnosed by testing of a stool sample. Vigorous rehydration and other supportive care is the usual treatment; antibiotic treatment is generally not recommended.
If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact Shawn Peerless, COO of Ohio Farms Packing Co at 1-718-599-6400.
