Sysco Ground Beef Patties Sold to Restaurants in Texas, Washington, Colorado & Arizona Recalled Due to Possible E. Coli Contamination

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) this evening announced a ground beef recall due to possible E. Coli contamination.

Sysco Seattle  Inc., located in Seattle, Washington, is recalling approximately 16,800 pounds of ground beef patties imported from Canada because they may have been contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 10 lb. boxes of PRIME RIB BEEF PATTIES 8 oz, with product code 55317, and production code 11 NO 22
  • 10 lb boxes of PRIME RIB BEEF PATTIES 71g, with product code 55391 and bearing a production code of 11 SE 01 or 12 JA 04

Imported products were produced by New Food Classics of Burlington, Ontario and were imported by Sysco Seattle Inc., for distribution to restaurants in Arizona, Colorado, Texas and Washington.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure. The very young, seniors and persons with weak immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.

According to the USDA, consumers with questions should contact Susan Linn at (832) 489-1799.
