Recalled ground beef sold nationwide at Target, Albertson’s, and Sam’s Club

Last week, the USDA issued a recall on approximately 132,000 pounds of ground beef products after one person died and 17 others were sickened with E. coli.

A list of the retailers that possibly received the contaminated products was released by the USDA. The list includes nationwide locations of Albertson’s/Safeway, Sam’s Club, and Target. Other locations that received the beef include:

1 Aldi Stores – Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin
2 FoodMaxx Stores – California
3 Meijer – Nationwide
4 Pak N Save Stores – California
5 Safeway/Albertson’s – Nationwide
6 Sam’s Club – Nationwide
7 Target – Nationwide
8 Vons Stores – California

The meat was processed and packaged by Cargill Meat Solutions in Colorado. The affected products include 3-, 10-, and 20- pound packages of ground beef under the brand names Our Certified, Excel, Sterling Silver, Certified and Fire River Farms. The packages had a use or freeze by date of July 11.

The recall alert was issued because officials are concerned that some of the products may still be in consumers’ freezers. Those who purchased the products are urged to not consume them and to either throw the meat away or return it to the place of purchase.

Cargill released a statement after the recall alert saying that all affected products have been removed from store shelves.
