USDA issues public health alert for beef products with possible E. coli contamination

(WIVB)–The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is issuing a public health alert for raw beef products imported from Ontario, Canada.

Ryding-Regency Meat Packers recalled the beef because due to possible E. coli contamination.

According to the FSIS, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is conducting a food safety investigation. They determined certain products produced by Ryding-Regency could be contaminated.

The FSIS says several shipments of the recalled beef made its way to the U.S.

Imported beef produced on May 27 and 30 that are subject to recall were used in the U.S. to produce other raw beef products distributed for sale.
