Arko Veal Co. Ground Beef Recall

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Arko Veal Co. will recall approximately 1,900 pounds of ground beef patties mix because it may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. Arko Veal Co. is located in Forest Park, Georgia.

The ground beef subject to recall includes:

50-pound cases of “BEEF PATTIES MIX,” “80/20.”

Each case bears the establishment number “Est. 20766” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a product code of “502250.” Each case bears a production date of “07-Oct-07,” “08-Oct-07” or “09-Oct-07.”

The beef patties mix was produced between October 7 and October 9, 2007, and was distributed to restaurants in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. It was not distributed to retail stores.

FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with this latest E. coli hamburger recall.

Symptoms of E. coli food poisoning include severe abdominal cramps and watery diarrhea. The diarrhea may become bloody and can lead to dehydration. Complications of E. coli food poisoning may include Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), a serious medical condition that occurs in about 2%-7% of cases. HUS is characterized by destruction of red blood cells, damage to the lining of blood vessel walls, and in severe cases, kidney failure. Blood transfusions and kidney dialysis are often required.
