WASHINGTON — Lakeside Refrigerated Services recalled some 120,872 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli O103, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service confirmed late Monday.
The affected products, which were shipped to retailers nationwide, were produced from Feb. 1, 2022, through April 8, 2022, and regulators are concerned that consumers may still have the products in their freezers.
Meanwhile, FSIS compiled a complete list of affected products and product codes.
Per the recall, all affected products bear establishment number “EST. 46841″ inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The potential contamination was discovered during routine FSIS testing of imported products.
According to the recall notice, Swedesboro, New Jersey-based Lakeside Refrigerated Services has fielded zero confirmed reports of illness or adverse reactions linked to the recalled products.
The particular strain of E. coli detected by regulators in the ground beef typically causes diarrhea and vomiting. Although most people recover within a week, more severe cases can develop, FSIS stated.
Consumers are advised not to consume any products affected by the recall and to either throw them out or return them to the place of purchase.
