National Steak and Poultry Recalls 248,000 Pounds of Beef Products


Washington, DC: National Steak and Poultry, an Owasso, Okla., establishment, is recalling approximately 248,000 pounds of beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

FSIS became aware of the problem during the course of an investigation of a cluster of E. coli O157:H7 illnesses. Working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state health and agriculture departments, FSIS determined that there is an association between non-intact steaks (blade tenderized prior to further processing) and illnesses in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, South Dakota and Washington. For a complete list of affected products see the link below.

Each package bears a label with the establishment number "EST. 6010T" inside the USDA mark of inspection, respective case codes cited above, and packaging dates of "10/12/2009," "10/13/2009," "10/14/2009," or "10/21/2009." These products were shipped to restaurants nationwide.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure.
