Chicago company recalls steaks

SUMMIT COUNTY – Stampede Meats of Chicago is recalling more than 739,000 pounds of frozen steak it distributed throughout the West between March 17 and 22.

The company distributed more than 13,100 pounds of the meat in Colorado.

The meat, which was distributed to retail supermarkets, restaurants, institutions and companies that sell meat door-to-door, might be contaminated with E. coli., a bacteria that can cause bloody diarrhea and intense abdominal cramps. Some patients can develop Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, which usually requires hospitalization. Children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable.

Products subject to the recall bear one of the codes listed and have “Stampede Meat, Inc. establishment #19113” inside the USDA Inspection Mark.

Whole steak is not usually associated with E.coli outbreaks, but some of the steak the company is recalling was injected with tenderizers and seasoning solutions that could have introduced surface contamination into the middle of the steak.

Patti Klocker, assistant director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, says people who have any of the recalled products – some of which could be in freezers – should dispose of it or return it to the store at which they bought it.
