Interstate Meat Dist. Inc. and the USDA have issued a recall for approximately 28,000 pounds of ground beef for potential contamination of E. Coli. The affected products were shipped to locations in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Packed on Dec. 20, 2021, consumers should discard any packages they have on hand with an establishment number of “EST. 965” which can be found within the USDA mark of inspection or printed next to the time stamp and use or freeze by date.

The recall affects several brands of ground beef, including Kroger, Winco, Walmart and Albertsons. You can see each product and its label here.

The USDA recall notice does not currently report any illnesses report, but that the issue was reported after a package was submitted to a third-party laboratory and was found to test positive for E. Coli.

If you do have an affected package, do not consume. Either throw away or return to the place of purchase for a refund.

Any questions can be submitted to Sales Manager Mike Sinner and Quality Assurance Manager Rodolfo Mendoza, Interstate Meat Dist., Inc., at (503) 656-6168.
