USDA Releases Retail Distribution List for Nicaraguan Meat

UPDATED October 29, 2008

Earlier this month, USDA issued a series of notices advising the public that beef trimmings imported from Nicaragua were contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 and had been recalled. At that time, the agency promised to furnish a list of recall establishments that were supplied the Nicaraguan meat.

USDA, at last, has posted the promised information. It would appear that most of the meat was supplied to wholesalers and processors. Very little of the meat seems to have reached the retail market – as opposed to the restaurant trade, for example – in identifiable form.

The original recall notices indicated that the Nicaraguan beef had been shipped to five states – California, Indiana, Wisconsin, New York and Pennsylvania – and to Puerto Rico. According to USDA, the following retail locations probably received the recalled meat. The agency cautions that other retailers may also have been recipients of the beef.
