New Seasons Market recalled fresh in-house ground beef products that were sold at the meat counters after an outbreak of E. coli.
The company reported that “presumptive tests show that some fresh ground beef sold is contaminated with E. Coli O157:H7.”
The recall includes ground beef in 5%, 10% and 20% fat content, as well as all other in-house made products like meatballs, meatloaf, and hamburger patties.
The products were sold from the meat cases and in ‘Grab-and-Go’ cases at all New Seasons Markets in Oregon, Washington and California.
The items were purchased between October 19 and October 23, 2019. Health officials recommend that customers who purchased ground beef between these dates should throw it away immediately.
“People who ate the product but did not get sick do not need to do anything. If you developed diarrhea after eating it, you should consult your health care provider and tell him or her about the exposure,” according to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).
