If you're planning on using ground beef in any of your meals over Thanksgiving weekend, make sure you're not using any of this recalled beef. It would be awful to send all your guests to the E.R. with E. coli.

On Wednesday, November 21, Utah-based Swift Beef Co. recalled 99,260 pounds of raw ground beef products due to possible E. coli contamination. The USDA reported the concerning news. 

Additionally, around 530 pounds of raw beef products from Salt Lake City-based Majestic Meat Company were also recalled, according to a news release. Both company’s beef samples tested positive E. coli.

Recalled Majestic Meat Company products include ground beef patties, bulk ground beef, and 10-pound packages of beef, pork and veal meatballs that were delivered to restaurants in Utah.

From Swift Beef Co., packages of beef and 2,000-pound bulk pallets of fine ground beef, which were sent to retail distributors for further processing and food distributors in California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Utah, were recalled. These products will have an establishment number of “EST. 628” on them.

Here are the Swift recalled meats:

2,000 lb. – bulk pallets of Swift Ground Beef 81/19 (81% lean) fine grind combo with product code 42982.

The majority of this meat was sent to restaurants or distributors for further processing, so it probably won't be in your fridge. However, it's good to be on the lookout, especially if you live in one of those states.
