Recalls Boneless Beef Products

More than 30 tons of beef at Waco-based H&B Packing Co., Inc. were recalled Sunday after sampling was positive for the rare E. coli 0103.

The products subject to recall are a 60-pound box containing boneless beef with case code 69029 and production date March 6, 2017 and multiple combo bins containing about 73,682 pounds of boneless beef with case code 69029 and production date March 6, 2017.

The recalled products also have the establishment number "EST". These items were shipped to food manufacturers within the state of Texas. "We urge consumers to take this recall seriously and return recalled products to the place of purchase or discard the product".

The problem was discovered when FSIS was notified by the state of Texas' Meat Safety Assurance Unit about a positive non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) sample. No confirmed reports of illness have been received to date in connection with the consumption of this item.
