Beef recall affects Maryland (Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts... )

New York beef manufacturer Fairbanks Farms has issued a voluntary recall of a little more than half a million pounds of ground beef. The recall, which affects states from Maine to North Carolina -- Maryland included -- comes after one person died in New Hampshire and people were sickened in other states after eating beef thought to be contaminated by the bacteria E.coli. The products, which include ground beef, meatloaf and meatball mix, carry sell-by dates from Sept. 19-28 and were sold under such brands as Trader Joe's Butcher Shop Fine Quality Meats, Giant Meatloaf & Meatball Mix and BJ's Lean Ground Beef, Contains 7% Fat. Here are some details from Fairbanks Farms. And here's a list of the products from the USDA. But the extent of affected meat could be much broader, the USDA warns. The products were distributed to stores in Maryland, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Virginia and the recall initially applied to just those states. But because chain stores often redistribute products, Fairbanks Farms has extended the recall to include all states throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Also confusing matters, the affected meat may carry different labels and sell-by dates than are included in the USDA product list. So bottom line: check the meat in your freezer. If you're concerned, contact the store where the meat was purchased. Or, just toss it in the trash if you're really worried.

I heard on the news Saturday - Elton John is in hospital
with E-Coli. Sounded serious. He had to cancel his concerts
that were in the U.S.

Just buy kosher meat. There has never been a kosher beef recall for e-coli in history.

Shame on you...LOL
It never said how he got it - just that is was E-coli.
I don’t want to start any false rumors.
It would be funny if it was from beef and he tells
everyone he’s a vegetarian. Caught!!

You can catch e-coli from lettuce handled by a person who didn’t wash their hands after going to the bathroom.

I’m sorry.

You’re fine.

I was reading about some kid in Nova Scotia who was sick with H1N1, and yet went to work at two different part time jobs for a week!

I just can’t imagine the germs one is exposed to by “eating out”.

Irradiate all beef and be done with these perennial recalls (and save money on Healthcare as well.)

Thanks TSR.

BJ'S is the only one mentioned that could be in this area. (re-packaging makes it all of us, I guess)

A couple of years ago I ground my own...now maybe I will do it again.

I make my own dog food since that scare and now more to do. LOL

Nice to see that our cutting edge and leading sun was on top of the story! I read about it yesterday from 2 other papers.
