Bison Meat Recalled

Approximately 66,000 pounds of bison meat have been recalled by Rocky Mountain Natural Meats of Henderson, Colorado after five cases of E. coli O157:H7 illnesses in Colorado from June 4 to June 9 are believed to be linked to ground and tenderized steak bison meat.

The meat was distributed distributed to retail establishments nationwide and to food service distributors in Utah and Arizona. The meats were produced between May 21 and May 27, but there the Food Safety and Inspection Service is still concerned that consumers may have the meat in their freezers. The recalled products include:

- 16-ounce packages of Great Range All Natural Ground Bison with a sell- or freeze-by date of June 21, 22, or 24.
- 16-ounce packages of Nature's Rancher Ground Buffalo with a sell- or freeze-by date of June 22.
