FSIS Public HEALTH ALERT
FOR POSSIBLE E. COLI O26
On April 27, 2022, FSIS issued a public health alert that originated from a consumer submitted sample of ground beef that was produced on December 16 and 17, 2021. An FSIS recall was not requested because the products are no longer available for purchase.
Laura's Lean Beef WAS NOT the source of the E coli O26 finding, however it was identified on the list of implicated products as it was produced on the same date(s) as the implicated product.
These products were manufactured at Empire Packing with the Establishment #31805, a facility that packages finished goods for retail stores in the Pacific Northwest.
Consumers should follow the guidance provided by USDA-FSIS in the public health alert and if they have any of the listed items remaining in their freezer consumers should discard or return to the store purchased. For further questions, consumers are encouraged to contact us at 1- 800-487-5326 / 1-800-ITS-LEAN or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
