October 3, 2007: USDA Counsels Consumers to Pay Attention to Topps Ground Beef Recall

Topps Ground Beef Recall Alert

The U.S. Agriculture Department is alerting consumers to the role they can play in the current Topps ground beef recall.

Richard Raymond, USDA undersecretary for food safety, said that the recalled product might still be in home freezers. Consumers should be sure not to make use of that meat.

The recall of 21.7 million pounds of ground beef products is the fifth largest in U.S. history. To date, 25 cases of E. coli food poisoning have been linked with the recalled meat.

Last week, the USDA suspended operations at Topps’ factory, and USDA investigators found that Topps had not been following proper meat handling procedures. Raymond said that meat processed on one day was mixed into the meat used the following day. The specific source of the E. coli contamination has not been determined.
