WASHINGTON – Nashville, Tennessee-based retail firm, Baraka Bakery and Grocery, is recalling an undetermined amount of ground beef products due to possible E. coli O157:H7 adulteration, the US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced April 27.
The following Halal products were processed and packaged between April 19, 2017 and April 26, 2017 and are subject to recall:
- Packages containing butcher ground to order “HALAL GROUND BEEF.”
The problem was discovered through routine FSIS retail sampling. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
