Illinois meat company recalls thousands of pounds of beef for E. coli

Nearly 5,000 pounds of beef heel and chuck tender products from the Aurora Packing Company are being recalled over E. coli concerns, the USDA announced. They were shipped to Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin.

The following products are being recalled:

  • Varying catch weight cardboard box case packages containing bulk pieces of “AURORA ANGUS BEEF BONELESS BEEF – CHUCK TENDER” and case code 61150 represented on the label.
  • Varying catch weight cardboard box case packages containing bulk pieces of “BONELESS BEEF – HEEL MEAT” and case code 29970 represented on the label.
  • Varying catch weight cardboard box case packages containing bulk pieces of “BONELESS BEEF – HEEL MEAT” and case code 49970 represented on the label.

The news release says the products were packed on February 27, and you should look out for “EST. 788” inside the USDA inspection mark. It also says nobody has reported E. coli symptoms.
