Nebraska Beef Recall: California Retail Distribution List

The California Department of Public Health has released a 7-page list of retail outlets in the state that received meat from one or more of the products recalled by Nebraska Beef Ltd. due to potential contamination with E. coli O157:H7.

According to the list, which is current as of August 13th, Stater Brothers, Foods Co., some IGA stores, a number of small retail meat markets, and numerous restaurants, hotels and food service establishments are impacted by this recall.

USDA promised last month that it would begin releasing a list of retail recipients of Class I-recalled meat and poultry. The "voluntary" recalls by Nebraska Beef Ltd. were prompted by two separate multi-state outbreaks of E. coli O157:H7 illnesses since late May. Surely, all consumers – not just those in California – have the right to know whether their local food market or restaurant was sold recalled food.
