WASHINGTON – New York Mills, NY-based United Processing LLC is recalling approximately 12,600 lbs. of boneless veal products as they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, E. coli O145 and E. coli O45, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
FSIS discovered the problem during an inspection program personnel review. The firm sampled the product per their food-safety program, but inadvertently shipped the product into commerce. No reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products have been received.
Products subject to FSIS recall include 60-lb. boxes of boneless veal. Suspect products bear the establishment number “M- 27450” inside the USDA mark of inspection on a generic box label. The products were produced on June 17, 18, 24, 28 and 29, 2013 and then distributed to wholesalers in New York and California for further processing.
