Beef Recalled in Texas Brookshire’s, Krogers, Walmarts and Super 1 Foods Due to E. Coli

Brookshire Food Stores, Krogers, Walmart, Super 1 Foods in Louisiana and Brookshire Food Stores in Arkansas also Impacted

Last week, PFP Enterprises of Fort Worth, TX, recalled approximately 15,865 pounds of beef products because they may be contaminated with E. coli O103, E. coli O111, E. coli O121, E. coli O145, E. coli O26 and E. coli O45.

On Friday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) stated they had reason to believe that the following retail location(s) received the beef products that have been recalled by the Texas-based company:

  • Super 1 Foods – 3828 Troup Highway – Tyler, Texas
  • Fresh by Brookshire’s – 6991 Old Jacksonville Highway – Tyler, Texas

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “Est. 34715” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. The products were produced on Dec. 5, 2013, and distributed to retail stores and restaurants in Arizona, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico and Texas. The following products are subject to FSIS recall:

    I continue to ask: which slaughter plant(s) were the source of this meat? PFP Enterprises is merely a further processing plant, not a slaughter plant. So, how did PFP allegedly INTRODUCE these various E.coli bugs into almost 8 tons of finished product? FSIS, I challenge you to enter this discussion, and reveal measures you have taken to implement Traceback protocol, a successful conclusion to which would greatly benefit public health. John Munsell

    *** IMPORTANT ***
    DOES THE RECALL INCLUDE THE PRODUCTS THAT HAS BEEN EXPORTED TO CANADA?

      Well, sure.
      We’re all one big family now thanks to NAFTA and the WTO.

    From an article on CBS News:

    Consumers who have questions about the recall can contact the plant’s Quality Control manager, Scott Parks, at (707) 762-6651.

    Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov.

      That is the wrong contact information. The one you listed is for the 9 million lb recall in CA. This article is about the 15,865 lb beef recall in TX.
