Ryding-Regency Meat Packers, Ltd. E. coli Lawyer Update: Beef Products Imported From Canada Recalled Due to E. coli Risks.

Ryding-Regency Meat Packers, Ltd. has issued a recall on raw non-intact beef products derived from imported beef from Ontario, Canada. The recall was issued because of potential E. coli O157: H7 contamination of the imported product.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a public health alert on October 16, 2019 regarding the raw non-intact beef products imported from Canada. The recall was issued after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency discovered that some of the imported products may have been contaminated with E. coli O157: H7. According to the FSIS, several shipments of beef implicated in a series of recalls have been exported to the U.S.

The contaminated products were distributed to institutions and retailers in Connecticut, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The imported products affected by the Canadian recall are:

The FSIS is urging customers who may have purchased any of the contaminated products to return them to the store from where it was purchased for a full refund. Retailers and restaurants are also being urged to refrain from selling or serving the contaminated products.

E. coli O157 is the predominate strain identified in outbreaks and sporadic cases in the United States and many other locations worldwide, there are a few areas where another E. coli strain is responsible for the largest number of cases. It can be potentially deadly; a person infected with the bacterium may experience symptoms such as bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure. Ron Simon, a national E. coli Lawyer, stated “The CDC estimates that every year over 73,000 are sickened, 2000 are hospitalized, and 60 die as a result of E. coli O157: H7 poisoning. O157: H7 is estimated to be the cause of between 0.6% and 2.4% of all cases of diarrhea. Further, studies estimate that this serotype causes between 15 and 36% of all cases of hemorrhagic colitis in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.”
