Topps E. coli Outbreak

New York State health officials are warning people not to eat certain Topps frozen ground beef patties due to the possibility of E. coli contamination. Officials believe that this is the same strain responsible for cases of E. coli infection in several other states including New York, Connecticut, Indiana, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

Topps, located in Elizabeth, N.J., is recalling 331,582 pounds of frozen ground beef products which may be contaminated with E. coli, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. The beef patties were produced on June 22, July 12, or July 23 and were distributed in New York and to stores nationwide.

According to New York State Health Department spokesperson, Claudia Hutton, six New York cases of E. coli food poisoning have been identified in Albany, Monroe, Herkimer, and Washington counties. Three people have been hospitalized.

Topps burger patties became suspect after the testing of hamburgers taken from the home freezer of one of the victim’s revealed the contamination. “It’s the same strain that matches a multistate outbreak. ”
