Approximately 337,775 pounds of ground beef products from Commercial Meat Co. have been recalled due to potential E. coli O157:H7 contamination. E. coli O157:H7 is a specific strain of bacteria that can cause abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, and potentially life-threatening kidney failure. The problem with the recalled meat was discovered during a routine inspection by the Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS), which confirmed a positive result for E. coli O157:H7. There have been no reports of illness related to the contamination, according to the FSIS.
EMSL Analytical, Inc. tests for E. coli and other pathogens in food products. Joseph Frasca, Senior VP of Marketing at EMSL, says they use various validated methods that are recognized and accepted by regulation agencies. EMSL also offers rapid pathogen screens where appropriate and requested.
