COAL VALLEY, Ill. – Executives of Valley Meats LLC want to make clear the recent recall of 1 million lbs. of ground-beef patties and bulk-beef products involved an unrelated but similarly named company, Valley Meat Co. based in Modesto, Calif.

Last week the U.S. Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) ordered Valley Meat Co. of Modesto to recall potentially contaminated beef (E. coli O157:H7) patties and ground beef in California, Texas, Oregon, Arizona and internationally.

Valley Meats LLC, which owns and operates a food processing facility in Coal Valley has recently employed the test-and-hold system for finished ground-beef verification sampling and the Sanova disinfectant system to continuously spray the surfaces of fresh raw materials used to produce ground-beef products, according to a news release.
