The beef heel and chuck tenders affected by the recall were produced on Feb. 27, and shipped “for institutional use” in Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin, according to a recall notice issued Tuesday.

Products affected by the recall include: “Aurora Angus Beef Boneless Beef – Chuck Tender,” with the case code 61150 and “Boneless Beef – Heel Meat” with case codes 29970 and 49970.

The items were sold in bulk pieces and shipped in cardboard box case packages of various weights. The USDA mark of inspection on the recalled products is labeled with “EST. 788.”

E. coli infections can result in “dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps” for 2 to 8 days, FSIS said. In severe cases, the bacterium can also cause hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a form of kidney failure most common among the elderly population and children younger than 5 years old.

The problem was brought to the attention of the company after routine testing by the FSIS identified the presence of E. coli in samples taken from the beef.

To date, no E. coli infections or other adverse events have been associated with the recalled beef, FSIS said.
