62,000 Pounds of Raw Meat is Being Recalled, Just Days Before Memorial Day

As we get ready to kick off the Memorial Day Weekend and Honor those that have protected and served this beautiful country of ours with family and friends you should be aware of this recall before firing up the grill this Memorial Day weekend.  If you are like me and millions of others who went on a shopping spree at the supermarket you may want to double check your meat products before you get a very un-festive surprise.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has issued a recall for more than 62,000 pounds of raw beef due to E. coli concerns.
Here are some things to keep in mind when checking your labels:

• The meat was packaged at the Aurora Packing Company, Inc in North Aurora, Illinois on April 19, but was shipped nationwide for distribution.

• According to the USDA’s announcement, the products being recalled have the establishment number “EST. 788” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The recall includes more than 40 products, most of which are cuts of steak, like ribeyes, as well as ribs and brisket cuts.

• Here’s a full list.

The USDA also points out that people sometimes like to freeze cuts of meat for future use, so if you’ve socked away some beef in your backup freezer recently, you may want to check that as well.
The possible E. coli contamination was discovered after a random sampling, and the USDA says there have been no reported cases of illness related to this recall.
Hopefully, you don’t have any recall items in the fridge and can enjoy some downtime this weekend, and let’s all remember to Honor all that have served
