Beef cheeks recall

WASHINGTON, July 23, 2008 - Beef Packers, Inc., a Fresno, Calif., firm, is recalling approximately 1,560 pounds of beef cheek products because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The following products are subject to recall:
These boxes of beef cheek meat products bear the establishment number "EST. 354" and a "PACKED ON" date of "07/02/08," ink-jet printed on the label, however, the product was intended for further processing or for packaging as raw beef cheek meat and will likely not bear the establishment number "EST. 354" on products available for direct consumer purchase.

The problem was discovered by company microbiological testing.

These beef cheek products were shipped to distributors in Fresno, Modesto, Santa Rosa and Vernon, Calif.

Dave Hutchins was just talking about these last week.
I remember, because I didn't know what they were and asked.
I hope these aren't what he purchased. YIKS!
Thanks, LC
