CFIA has now confirmed that more than 210 products have been affected by the recall. The latest update adds raw boneless beef trim to the recall roster and lists two new production days on Aug. 27 and Aug. 29 to the original recall.
The beef products were distributed to U.S. businesses in California, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin, as well as in Canada.
USDA confirmed earlier that the beef from XL Foods Inc. that was shipped to several U.S. companies might be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. The original public health alert included an unspecified amount of ground beef that may have been used to make other not-ready-to-eat products, which the agency is trying to identify to remove the products from the marketplace.
In the last week, Kroger Co. and Safeway Inc. have released lists of affected products they believe may be found in the refrigerators and freezers of their customers. So far, no illnesses linked to the tainted meat have been reported
