Big Y Foods, Inc is issuing a recall on their fresh ground sirloin after a product that was produced in the same facility tested positive for E. coli.
The company released the following statement, Thursday on the recall:
"We have just been notified that our supplier, National Beef Packing Company, LLC has issued a voluntary recall on a product that was produced in the same facility as our ground sirloin. Because one of their ground beef samples tested positive to E.coli 0157:H7 and our product was produced in the same plant, we are voluntarily recalling all of our fresh ground sirloin labeled as fresh ground sirloin 87 percent lean or sirloin steak patties 87 percent lean sold between 7/18/13 and 8/1/13, even though none of our product tested positive. This recall does not affect any other ground beef items sold at Big Y other than the ground sirloin. Keeping the well-being of our customers in mind we urge them to check their freezers and refrigerators for this product. If you have any of these products, return them to Big Y for a full refund. We thank everyone for their cooperation with this recall."
