The Canadian Food Inspection Agency on Saturday added more beef products to its public warning over possible E. coli O157:H7 contamination in products produced at the XL Food Inc. plant in Alberta, Canada.
The CFIA is warning the public, distributors and food service establishments not to consume, sell or serve the beef products. The additional products are associated with the same XL Foods manufacturing dates of August 24, 27, 28, 29 and September 5, 2012, as the previously recalled ground beef products.
The trace out from XL to secondary and tertiary distributors, manufacturers and retailers could result in a large number of affected products over a wide range of codes and dates, the agency noted.
The list ranges from ground beef to roasts and steaks, and includes products from retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores, Costco Wholesale Corp, and smaller chains.
On Friday, USDA extended its public health alert about beef from the plant to include stores in 30 states, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) temporarily suspended the company’s operating license.
