(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - Richwood Meat Co, Inc., a Merced, Calif., establishment, is voluntarily recalling approximately 107,943 pounds of frozen ground beef products because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The problem was discovered through sampling done by the California Department of Health Services in the course of an investigation.

The ground beef was produced on April 28th, 2006 and was sent to retail outlets in Arizona, California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration.

The very young, seniors and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact company Vice-President Steve Wood at (209) 722-8171, ext. 14.

The labels of the products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 8264 inside the USDA mark of inspection.
