Veal affected by the recall was sold exclusively to foodservice operators in 60-pound boxes under the label “Atlantic Veal & Lamb Inc.: Boneless Veal SF,” and “Atlantic Veal & Lamb LLC: Boneless Veal,” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS).

The recall includes veal with a product code of: 511012, 511020, 511021, 511023, 511024, 511030, 511032, 511034, 511336, 511337, 511340, 511341, 511343, 511351, 511362, 51136, 507023, 507030, 507335, 507342, 507356, 507358.

Affected products were produced between Nov. 30, 2016 and Feb. 3, 2017, and shipped to distributors in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas and Canada.

And undetermined amount of veal cutlets produced by Ohio Farms Packing Co. were also included in the recall, all of which were sold to food services and not to consumers.

The manufacturer was altered to the potential E. coli contamination after FSIS was notified by the Illinois State Department of Agriculture about a positive non-0157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli sample.

Symptoms of E. coli include diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever. More severe cases can lead to bloody diarrhea, dehydration, or even kidney failure. People with weakened immune systems, pregnant women, young children, and older adults are at increased risk for developing these complications.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall.
