Tri State Beef Recalls 228,596 Pounds of Potentially E. coli-tainted Beef

Tri State Beef, a Cincinnati, Ohio, establishment, is recalling approximately 228,596 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 following product is subject to recall:


Each bin bears the establishment number “EST. 1750” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products subject to recall were produced between July 19, 2011 and July 22, 2011, and sold to federally-inspected establishments for further processing and distribution in Chicago, Ill., Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, Iowa and Va.

The problem was discovered through routine FSIS testing which confirmed a positive result for E. coli O157:H7. It should be noted that these products were distributed to facilities where they were cooked and as a result received full-lethality treatment, which would effectively kill the E.coli O157:H7 pathogen in the products.

Because the products were shipped into commerce they are subject to recall, even though they were shipped to other federally-inspected establishments where they received full-lethality treatment and would no longer be considered adulterated.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

  • ACTIONS ON FOOD SECURITY ! The Govt or its depts will NOT do it. They may be deeply involved and benefitted by it. The consumers cannot come together. They have insufficient time for even consuming all types of food discerningly. A few individuals cannot do it. NGO, Non Govt Organisations interested in EarthLife Protection will not do it successfully. They may also get rewards for becoming suddenly turncoats. Then who can do it?
    Such big commercial companies who are going to lose millions of money in their currencies will lose by acts of EColi Recall. That means they should come together to capture the culprit if they want to be in good business for the coming years. No time left. When evil intended forces have a stock of advocates for fighting for continuing of injustice to innocent public, good establishments NOT wanting to lose money on recall should do it by coming together. This will be over and above insuring their products against re calls unexpected!

  • Minkpuppy, i think the first comment was a poor translation or attempt to get people to go to his web site. Has any progress been made on testing for the other toxigenic E. coli?

    Dog Doctor- Things are all quiet on the FSIS front. I think they’re probably waiting for Congress to quit acting like children and settle the debt ceiling business.

    Dog Doctor-
    Let’s try this again. My previous response disappeared into the interwebs never to be seen again.
    All’s quiet on the FSIS front. I’m sure the current excuse is the debt ceiling crisis…
