Canada Officials Issue Recall of Ground Beef
EDMONTON - Canada's food safety watchdog has issued another beef recall over possible E. coli contamination — the fourth this month.
The latest "health hazard alert" recall involves Kirkland Signature brand lean ground beef sold at a Costco store in Lethbridge, Alta.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Costco are warning people not to eat this product because it may contain E. coli bacteria.
The CFIA says this is an expansion of a similar recall of Kirkland Signature brand organic lean ground beef sold at Costco stores in Alberta, B.C., Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Earlier this month the agency recalled Compliments brand Super 8 Beef Burgers sold in Sobeys, Foodland, Freshco and Price Chopper stores in Ontario and Atlantic Canada that has been linked to seven people becoming ill.
This recall was later expanded to include some President's Choice Beef Burgers and Webers Bucket of Burgers sold in Loblaw stores that may have been distributed across Canada.
