    Beef products recalled due to E. coli concerns

    Beef products recalled due to E. coli concerns

    The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning consumers and food companies after an Alberta company voluntarily recalled a number of beef products because of possible contamination of E. coli bacteria.

    The meat, some of which was distributed nationally, was used in Kirkland Signature and Safeway brands. It was also sent to Wal-Mart stores in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

    The CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses but has a complete list of the products on its website. Consumers who are unsure if they have any recalled items are being told to check with the store where the products were purchased.

    Most of the products, from XL Food, were distributed in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

    The meat may have been contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 and might not look or smell spoiled, according to the CFIA. Consumption of beef contaminated with the bacteria can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses.

    Metro grocery stores pulls beef due to E. coli concerns - Ottawa - CBC News

    Metro grocery stores have pulled all XL Foods Inc. beef products covered by the recall from its shelves.

    The CFIA did not ask that products be pulled from shelves until Sept. 16, but has decided to expand the recall after more concerns we brought regarding other products distributed by XL Foods.

    In a statement released Saturday, the grocer said the measure applies to all Metro stores in Quebec and Ontario, this means all Metro, Metro Plus, Super C, March? Richelieu and Food Basics will stop carrying XL Foods beef until the recall is over.

    XL Foods' license was temporarily suspended by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on Sept. 27 after the E.coli bacteria was found in beef products in the United States.
