WASHINGTON – One Great Burger, Elizabeth, N.J., is expanding its Jan. 10 recall of 226,400 lbs. of ground beef products to include an undetermined amount of additional ground beef products that may have become spoiled, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
All products subject to this recall are adulterated because the establishment's food-safety plan was inadequate to produce safe product, according to an FSIS press release. In a continued investigation of the Jan. 10 recall, FSIS became aware of additional consumer complaints of discoloration and off-odors in the products. FSIS has since determined this ground beef is also adulterated and should not be consumed.
No reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products have been made.
Products subject to the additional recall are:
- 4-lb. boxes of "Winn Dixie beef patty 100% BEEF." Each box contains 16 frozen patties weighing ¼ lb. each. Each box bears establishment number "EST. 34575" within the USDA mark of inspection. The products have "Sell by" dates of "01/01/11" through "02/27/11" printed on the bottom of each box, followed by the lot code "204110." Similar products with later "Sell by" dates are not subject to this recall. The products were produced between April 2010 and May 2010 and were distributed to grocery stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. While the products listed above have been unavailable for purchase since May 2010, consumers who may have purchased them are urged to remove them from their freezers and discard them.
One Great Burger is recalling an additional 21,400 lbs. of the following product, which was listed in the Jan. 10 release:
- 20-lb. boxes of "OneGreat Hamburgers" with "Item #02044" labeled on the front as well as "Keep Frozen."
Each box bears establishment number "Est. 34575" within the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced between Jan. 2010 and May 2010 and contain "Packed on" dates ranging from July 2010 to Nov. 2010. The products were distributed to institutions nationwide.
