Toppenish Company Issues Beef Recall Due to E. coli Concerns

Posted: Updated:
TOPPENISH, WA - A company in Toppenish is recalling 1,620 pounds of boneless beef-trim products produced in 2012 that may have been contaminated with E. Coli. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says the Washington Beef company produced the product in 60-pound bulk packs on Nov. 28, 2012. 

The packs were shipped for further processing to a single grinding facility, then on for use in hotels, restaurants and institutions in Oregon and Washington. 

The Agriculture Department and the company say they have received no reports of illness connected to the product. 

The problem was found during an internal company audit. 

The recalled product has the establishment number EST. 235 inside the USDA inspection mark. 

E. coli bacteria can cause dehydration, diarrhea and abdominal cramps. 

Some people may develop a type of kidney failure.
