Following a recall by Lakeside Refrigerated Services for 42,922 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli, La Bodega Meat LLC has recalled 83,038 pounds of raw beef products because they were not inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) prior to import into the U.S.

The affected raw beef products include boneless ribeye rolls, flanks steaks, fresh boneless briskets, fresh eye of rounds, fresh flap meats, fresh inside skirts, fresh outside rounds, fresh top sirloins, inside rounds, outside skirts, peeled knuckles, and shoulder clods.

The recalled beef was imported into the U.S. on June 2 and June 3 and sold in 51.90-pound boxes. The meat is marked with an Establishment 5 inside the foreign mark of inspection. The boxes also have shipping marks that say 0671-20 or 0627-20.

The affected meat was shipped to distributors in Arkansas, Missouri, and Texas for foodservice and retail sales. Labels of the recalled meat can be viewed here.

Consumers, retailers, and distributors are urged to check their refrigerators and freezers for the recalled beef products. The meat should not be consumed. The beef should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Questions about the recall can be directed to Jose Torres, director at La Bodega Meat at 214-402-4966.

The FSIS discovered the issue during a routine inspection. La Bodega has not received any reports of adverse reactions from the recall. Consumers concerned about a reaction should contact their healthcare provider.
