(Best Syndication News) - One million pounds of frozen ground beef has been recalled by the Valley Meat Company located in Modesto, California. The reason for the recall of the frozen ground beef patties and the bulk ground beef packages are because they could be contaminated with E.coli O157:H7. This recall was announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) today.

There was six patients that became ill between April 8 and June 18, 2010 that the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) identified with a rare strain of E. coli O157:H7. The CDPH found another case in February with the same strain of infection which they added tot he investigation.

The recalled beef products are many and they will have the establishment number "EST. 8268" inside the USDA inspection mark. There will also be a production code numbers 27509 through 01210. The ground beef was processed between October 2, 2009 through January 12, 2010. They were sold to retail grocers and also to institutional food service providers located in California, Oregon, Arizona, and Texas. They also distributed the meat internationally to food service companies.

The USDA recall officials are concerned that people may have the contaminated ground beef in their freezers. They emphasize the importance of consumers checking the freezers for the ground beef to see if it is involved in the recall. If the frozen ground beef is included in this recall they are asking the consumer to discard the meat because of the seriousness of the possible contamination. They also suggest that if you have become sick with a food borne illness to make sure to seek professional medical attention.

Below is a complete list of the different ground beef products involved in the recall.
