Following risks of being contaminated with E. coli, ground beef products sold at the supermarkets in Canada have been recalled.
In a statement released this Monday, Canadian Food Safety and Inspection Agency declared that XL Foods of Alberta has suspected that the ground beef used in making products such as patties, meatballs and meatloaf, might be infected by E. coli. Hence, it has recalled these products from majority of the grocery chains operated across Canada.
It has been reported that most of the infected foods were sold at retail outlets in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. However, the products have also been sold at other stores across the nation.
CFIA said, “Products subject to the recall include ground beef, burger patties, ground chuck, ground sirloin patties, stuffed peppers, meatballs, beef sliders, meatloaf, cheddar cheese patties and ground beef tubes”.
Further, the agency has detailed that the products have been packaged between August 29 and September 15, 2012.
The agency affirmed that it is carrying out a food safety inquiry, of which even this recall is a part and they assured that they are reviewing the products included and also looking out for other products that might be suspected and may have to be recalled.
