Veal and lamb manufacturer Marcho Farms Inc. has recalled 5,620 pounds of its boneless veal, ground veal, beef, and pork products for potential contamination of non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The products affected by the recall include: 60-pound cases of “Veal Boneless Trimmings Halal” with case code “5398” and manufacturing date of 04/11/2017; 60-pound cases of “Veal Trimmings USDA Choice” with case code “98” and manufacturing date of 04/11/17; 9-pound cases of “Veal, Beef, Pork Ground For Meatloaf” with case code “3122” and “Sell By” date 05/05/17; and 10-pound cases of “Veal, Beef, Pork Ground for Meatloaf Bulk Pack” with case code “3125.”

According to FSIS, the group was notified when the Illinois State Meat Inspection Service found non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli in samples of the manufacturer’s products.

There have been no confirmed reports of reactions related to the recalled products to date.
