Yikes. It looks like moms all across the country are going to have to clean out their refrigerators tonight. There has been a massive recall on ground beef and it doesn’t look good.

Following reports that Chipotle is closing down many of its locations because of an E. coli breakout, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued a recall for over 167,000 pounds of beef which might also be tainted, as well. So yeah, we are definitely not having tacos tonight.

According to the USDA’s press release, the meat in question includes that labeled in the following six ways:

  • 80-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef 80% Lean 20% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 62100.
  • 80-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef 73% Lean 27% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 60100.
  • 60-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef Round 85% Lean 15% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 68560.
  • 60-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef Chuck 81% Lean 19% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 68160.
  • 60-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef Chuck 81% Lean 19% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 63130.
  • 80-lb. (approximate weight) boxes of “Ground Beef Chuck 81% Lean 19% Fat (Fine Grind)” with Sell By Date 11-03-2015 and case code 63100.

If you have any questions or concerned, definitely reach out to Shawn Buchanan at (402) 734-6901. Also definitely return the beef in question to the retailer you bought it from. If you are suffering from any symptoms like stomach cramping and dehydration, definitely call your doctor immediately.
