WASHINGTON – Lombardi Brothers Meats in Denver recalled approximately 26,975 lbs. of tenderized steak and ground beef on concerns the items may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the Food Safety and Inspection Service reported.

The company discovered the problem on June 30 following a positive test for E. coli. The test was part of the company’s in-house sampling program. FSIS said some products were made from the same source material as the sample that tested positive for E. coli. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the products.

The affected products with generic labeling bear the establishment number “EST. 772” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
