The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is alerting consumers to a recall of fresh ground beef instituted by Paradise Halal Meat Market of Edmonton, Alberta. The meat may contain E. coli O157:H7.
The recalled meat is five months old. It was sold by Paradise Halal during the time period of January 11 to January 14, 2008, inclusive. If you purchased this meat and still have some in your freezer, please discard it.
No illnesses have been associated with this product, according to CFIA. One has to wonder, then, what triggered the testing of five-month old "fresh ground meat".
