Sysco Seattle Inc. is recalling 16,800 pounds of ground beef patties due to risk of contamination by E. coli bacteria. The meat originated in Canada, a product of New Food Classics of Burlington, Ontario, and may have been tainted by the potentially deadly bacteria E. coli 0157:H7. The patties were intended for distribution to restaurants in Washington, Arizona, Colorado and Texas. At least one illness has been reported in Canada from the tainted beef. Children, seniors and those with weakened immune systems are most vulnerable.
Victims of E. coli infection resulting from tainted food may have claims against the food’s producers, distributers, and other entities involved.
