WASHINGTON, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service announced a recall of approximately 420 pounds of frozen beef trim in Puerto Rico due to possible contamination.
The FSIS said Packers Provision, a Puerto Nuevo, Puerto Rico, company recalled the meat because it might be contaminated with E.coli O157:H7.
Being recalled are 60-pound bulk boxes of "BM-95 BONELESS BEEF." Each shipping container bears the establishment No. "Nicaragua 4" inside the Nicaraguan mark of inspection. The shipping label bears the item No. "00003," and an Aug. 19 packing date.
The recall expands a similar action announced last week in which Nicaraguan-produced frozen beef trim products were exported to the United States and then sent to various distributors and other establishments for further processing. The recall was expanded Monday to Puerto Rico.
