WASHINGTON—Lakeside Refrigerated Services is recalling about 120,872 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O103, according to an announcement by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The ground beef products were produced from February 1, 2022, through April 8, 2022. Here is the complete list of products and product codes for the beef products that are subject to recall, and here are the labels for the ground beef products.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 46841” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The problem was discovered during routine FSIS testing of imported products. There have been no confirmed reports of illness or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
Under the 2021 publication of the FDA Data Dashboard, the public has access to multiple food facility FDA inspection reports, and to increase public data access even further, in January 2022, FDA added 10 years of Reportable Food Registry data to the interactive dashboard.
The Acheson Group lists the different dashboard held within the FDA Data Dashboard.
“FDA has essentially opened the doors of food facilities to the public. No longer are non-compliances kept behind closed doors until or unless a warning letter is issued, or someone has some specific knowledge provoking an FOIA request,” states the group. “Now anyone, at any time, can open the dashboard and scroll through the lists of tables of Inspection Details and even more specifically, Inspections Citations Details—including company name, inspection date(s) and both short and long descriptions of all citations. And all data is sortable, filterable and downloadable.”
