WinCo Foods Expands Recall of Fresh Ground Beef Purchased Between March 26, 2010 and April 9, 2010 to all WinCo Foods Stores Due to E. coli O157:H7 Risk

Well done WinCo!

Yesterday, WinCo Foods announced that it was issuing an expansion of the Class 1 recall on all fresh ground beef products sold at all WinCo Foods stores: The original recall issued on April 10, 2010 was for ground beef sold from it’s Modesto store only.

Originally an independent lab had tested two samples of ground beef purchased at the Modesto, California store to be positive for E. coli O157:H7 and out of concern for the health of our customers and our ongoing commitment to provide only safe, quality products, WinCo Foods decided it was appropriate to issue a recall for the Modesto store.

The product under recall is all fresh ground beef packed in styrofoam trays with a sale date of March 28, 2010 through April 9, 2010. Product should either be returned to the store for refund or be destroyed. No illnesses have been confirmed to date in connection with this recall. List of all stores subject to recall.
