Newswanger Meats said the recalled meat was produced with use of water that tested positive for coliform bacteria, and which failed to meet Ohio Department of Health requirements. E. coli was not present in the water supply, the company said.

Affected products include:

  • 10 lbs. fresh beef stew meat
  • 10 lbs. fresh beef cubed steaks
  • 3 lbs. fresh beef strip steaks
  • 75 lbs. fresh ground beef
  • 5 lbs. fresh breakfast sausage links
  • 3 lbs. fresh maple flavored sausage links
  • 3 lbs. fresh Italian sausage links
  • 20 lbs. fresh pork chops
  • 10 lbs. fresh pork steaks
  • 8 lbs. fresh pork roasts
  • 1,440 lbs. fresh chorizo sausage in 1 lb. packages
  • 3 rind on carcass hogs
  • 13 lbs. chicken (leg quarters, drumsticks, boneless breast, and thighs)
  • Various sliced deli meats

All of the the above meats were produced on Oct. 4-6, 2017, and bear the establishment number EST. 151 inside the Ohio mark of inspection. The lot codes above the mark of inspection are 17J04, 17J05, 17J06, and OCT0517.

Coliforms are bacteria that are found in the digestive tracts of humans and other animals, and are also found in plant and soil mineral. When ingested, coliforms can cause gastrointestinal distress and flu-like symptoms including fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. These symptoms are most likely in children, the elderly, and individuals with compromised immune systems.

Newswanger Meats is urging customers not to eat any of the recalled meats, and to either discard them safely or return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall, Newswanger said.
