Kroger has recalled an unspecified amount of meat from an unspecified supplier that is possibly contaminated with E. coli. In-store produced ground beef, boneless ribeye steaks and bone-in ribeye steaks are included in the recall.
At the time of this publication, Kroger did not specify as to how the E. coli contamination was discovered and the USDA has yet to post a beef recall.
The recalled meat was available to consumers from April 23 through June 7. According to Food Safety News, the beef was distributed to grocery stores in some parts of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
“The product may be contaminated with E. coli 0157:H7 and, if eaten, could result in severe illness to those individuals who may consume this product,” according to the Kroger recall notice. “Please check your freezer for this product, as it may have been frozen for storage. There have been no confirmed reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Please return the product to this store for a full refund.”
