New Seasons Market E. coli Lawyer Update: Ground Beef Products Due to E. coli O157: H7 Risks.
New Seasons Market, an upscale grocery chain, has expanded their recall on many of their fresh in-house made ground beef products such as meatballs, meatloaf and hamburger patties of all varieties. The recall was originally issued on November 9, 2019, due to the fact that some of the ground beef, which was used to make the products, tested positive for E. coli O157: H7 contamination. The contaminated beef products were labeled with “Packed On” dates from Oct. 19 to Oct. 23, and “Sell By” dates from Oct. 23 through Oct. 26. New Seasons also stated that new tests showed that beef products sold on November 8, 2019, were also contaminated with E. coli O157: H7.
The Oregon Health Authority announced that there are a total of 4 lab-confirmed cases of E. coli O157: H7 linked to the contaminated ground beef which was sold at New Seasons Market. According to health officials, New Seasons Market has suspended the sales of the contaminated beef products. Jonathan Modie, a spokesman of the Oregon Health Authority, said a few days after the first 3 lab-confirmed cases were announced that the state was aware of the three illnesses but said there could be more that haven’t been reported to public health authorities.
New Seasons Market said that consumers who have purchased any of the beef products associated with the recall should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund; the grocery chain has stated that a receipt will not be required for a refund. The Oregon Health Authority has advised consumers who may have eaten the contaminated beef product and is experiencing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, bloody diarrhea, and fever to contact a health care provider as soon as they are able to. Ron Simon, a national E. coli Lawyer, stated “The most commonly identified STEC in North America is E. coli O157: H7. When you hear news reports about outbreaks of E. coli infections, they are usually referring to E. coli O157.”
