The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) says consumers should check their freezers due to the nationwide recall of ground beef.  The recall was issued due to a possible e. coli contamination. New reports say that ground meat could have been sold at Target, Safeway and Sam’s Club.

The recalled products have an establishment number of “EST. 86R” inside the USDA inspection mark.

The USDA issued a recall on 66 tons of Cargill Meat Solution’s ground beef products made from the chuck portion of the cow for a possible e. coli contamination.

The USDA says the recalled products were sold at Safeway/Albertson’s and Target stores nationwide and Sam’s Club stores in North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia.  The meat was packaged on June 21, 2018; however, officials are worried consumers may have some in their freezers.  The USDA says to check your meat and discard it or return to your store for a refund.

So far, there have been 17 illnesses and one death due to the contaminated meat. 

Recovering compensation after an injury from a defective product

If you can prove that your food poisoning or food-related illness or injury was caused by a contaminated or misbranded food product, you may be able to pursue a product liability claim against the business that sold or prepared that food product. You should also contact your local health department to report the incident.

A claim against the negligent business or manufacturer for food poisoning or food- related illness or injury will seek recovery of medical bills, lost wages, out of pocket expenses and pain and suffering.

If you or someone you know has been injured or diagnosed with food poisoning due to a contaminated or misbranded food product, call Berger and Green at 412-661-1400 to schedule a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer in Pittsburgh today.
