More than 3,000 pounds of boneless beef chuck products have been recalled because they may have been contaminated with a strain of E. coli.

Elkhorn Valley Packing issued the recall for Elkhorn Valley Pride Angus Beef 61226 BEEF CHUCK 2PC BNLS, which was packed on February 16, 2023, after a sample tested positive for Shiga toxin-producing E. coli, according to the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The product was shipped to distributors, federal establishments, retailers, and wholesalers including hotels and restaurants in nine states: Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

The agency made the discovery during routine testing. There have not been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions related to the consumption of the recalled meat.

According to federal health officials, people who consume the organism may become ill between two and eight days later. Some symptoms include diarrhea (oftentimes may be bloody), vomiting, and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) which is a type of kidney failure. Some illnesses can last longer and can become more severe.

Anyone who has purchased any Elkhorn Valley products should immediately throw the items away or returned them back to the place of purchase.
