BOISE, Idaho, Aug. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In cooperation with the Cargill Meat Solutions Class 1 recall of approximately 25,288 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, Albertsons, Safeway, Pak ‘N Save, and Vons stores in seven states are voluntarily recalling certain ground beef products made with beef supplied by Cargill.

The recall impacts a list of products (below) sold at stores in Northern California, Colorado, Nebraska, Northern Nevada, New Mexico, South Dakota, and Wyoming. NOTE: The product recall list includes some products that were not made with Cargill beef but were prepared in close proximity to the recalled Cargill beef. The recalled products were sold between August 20 and August 23 (8-20-18 and 8-23-18). The products have Sell Thru dates of August 21 through August 25 (8-21-18 through 8-25-18). The Sell Thru date is printed on the scale label.

Cargill discovered the problem on August 22 after routine testing and a review of their records determined that certain beef products may be associated with a presumptive positive for E. coli O157:H7. Cargill then notified the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). To date there have been no confirmed reports of illness associated with the consumption of Cargill products or products sold at Albertsons, Safeway, Pak ‘N Save or Vons stores. The stores issued a recall out of an abundance of caution.

Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider. E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

Consumers are asked to check their refrigerators and freezers for recalled products. Consumers who have purchased these products are asked to discard or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160°F. The only way to confirm that ground beef is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature, http://1.usa.gov/1cDxcDQ.

Members of the media with questions about the recall can contact Michael Martin, Cargill's Director of Communications, at (316) 291-2126. Consumers with questions about the Albertsons, Safeway, Pak ‘N Save and Vons recall can call 1-877-723-3929 anytime. Recalled Products Sold at Safeway, Vons, and Pak ‘N Save Stores in Northern California and Northern Nevada
