No Illnesses Linked to Beef Products Recalled by JSM Meat Holdings

May 19, 2008 -- JSM Meat Holdings Company of Chicago is recalling certain beef products because of risk of E. coli contamination.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the voluntary recall, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

E. coli bacteria can cause diarrhea, which may be bloody. Serious and potentially fatal complications may develop; babies, elders, and people with weak immune systems are especially vulnerable.

The recall involves the following beef products, which were sent to companies in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin: 30-pound, 60-pound boxes, combo boxes, or 47-gallon gallon barrels of "MORREALE MEAT" beef products labeled as "Boneless Chucks," "Boneless Clods," "Flat Rounds," "Gooseneck Rounds," "Knuckle," "Heel Meat," "Scotties," "Trimmings 50," "Trimmings 60," "Trimmings 65," "Trimmings 70," "Trimmings 75," "Trimmings 80," "Trimmings 85," or "Trimmings 90." The recalled beef products bear the establishment number "EST. 6872" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

In a news release, the USDA states that the recall involves an "undetermined" amount of beef products and advises consumers with questions about the recall to call JSM Meat Holdings Company President Steve Hurckes Sr. at 312-421-3664 ext. 214.
