Beef Products From MA Subject to Recall

Adams Farm Slaughterhouse, LLC., an Athol, Mass., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,574 pounds of beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

This recall was initiated after the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) confirmed a positive ground beef sample for E. coli O157:H7, which it collected during an epidemiological investigation.

Working in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH), FSIS determined that there is an association between the ground beef products and an illness in the state of Massachusetts. FSIS is continuing to work with the MDPH on the investigation. Anyone with signs or symptoms of foodborne illness should consult a physician.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 1,025-pounds of “Beef Cuts and Ground” packed for Mazzarese.
  • 697-pounds of “Beef Cuts and Ground” packed for Side Hill Farm.
  • 852-pounds of “Beef Cuts and Ground” packed for Sweet Water Farm.

Each package bears a label with the establishment number “EST. 5497” inside the USDA mark of inspection as well as the packaging date of “11/11/2009.” The beef products were distributed to private owners on three separate farms in the state of Massachusetts.

This announcement was posted on the USDA website.
