96,000 Pounds of Beef Products from North Carolina Firm Recalled Due to Possible E. coli O157:H7 Contamination

From USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, 03/02/10

Randolph Packing Co. Inc., an Asheboro, N.C. establishment, is recalling approximately 96,000 pounds of beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The products subject to recall include:

  • Combo bin packages of "Randolph Packing Co., Inc. BONELESS BEEF."

  • 30 lbs. boxes of "Beef Ribeye Rolls."

Each package label bears the establishment number "EST. 6590" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The products were produced on February 25, 2010, and were distributed to federal establishments for further processing in Ill., Mo., N.Y., Ohio, and Va. None of these products are available directly to consumers.

The problem was discovered through FSIS microbiological sampling.
