Ground Beef

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service are recalling over 28,000 lbs of ground beef due to it potentially being contaminated with E. Coli, a potentially deadly bacteria.

The meat was distributed by Interstate Meat Distributors out of Oregon and sold at WinCo, Wal-Mart, Albertsons, and Kroger stores in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, and Utah.

To see if your products may be affected, look for the establishment number “EST. 965” inside the USDA mark of inspection or printed next to the time stamp and use or freeze by date. You can also head here to view the labels and packaging of the meat products that are being recalled.

Ground Beef

If you are in possession of these ground beef products, you are urged not to consume them and either dispose of them or return them to the store where you purchased them. Don’t forget to check your freezer too!

If you believe you may have consumed an affected product and are experiencing any symptoms including dehydration, bloody diarrhea, and abdominal cramps for between 2-8 days, please do not hesitate to seek emergency medical care immediately. Generally, most people can recover after exposure to the organism, but young children and the elderly will be at a greater risk.

If you have any food safety questions, you can call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline from 10 AM to 6PM ET Monday through Friday.

    It is depressing that these recalls happen because it means that thousands of animals were killed for no reason.

      Very true

      Oh goodness

    Why not just thoroughly cook the meat? It isn’t like anyone is going to eat this raw.

    Hip2Save, I love you and have followed your site for 10 yrs but these recall posts cause great anxiety. I come to your site to relax and get deals. Its a nice escape from our world. If I want recalls and news I would go to a news channel. Please re consider posting these type of posts! Thank you πŸ™‚

      Hi, Kaylee! I’m so sorry that this post has caused anxiety for you as that is certainly never our intention. πŸ€— While sharing deals will always be at the heart of what we do, we also believe it’s important to share important information, such as recalls, with our many readers. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. I’ll be sure to pass it along to our team.

    I appreciate hearing about the recalls through this site. I might not hear of them otherwise.

    • alex

      I appreciate these important safety warnings, as well. I can always skip items which are irrelevant to me.

      Same here since I stopped watching news.

    I would never know about any recalls without a notice like this, I don’t watch the news either, too depressing. Thanks for letting us know, although I cannot afford 90-93% lean ground beef, so I won’t worry about this, lol!

      You’re very welcome, Pat! πŸ€—
