Aurora Packing Company warns customers that beef heel and chuck tender products produced and packed on 27 February have been recalled. 

Customers are urged to look out for the packets with the case code 61150 on the label, with the phrase "Aurora Angus Beef Boneless Beef - Chuck Tender."

Other batches which were recalled included case code 29970 and 49970, both labeled as "Boneless Beef Heel Meat." 


The recall notice was issued after the Food Safety, and Inspection Service (FSIS) learned of the possible E. coli contamination during testing.

Any facilities that have purchased the products have been urged not to use them, but instead, throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

E. coli O157: H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium. It can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps for up to eight days. 


Anyone concerned about coming into contact with the contaminated products should contact a health care provider as soon as possible.

For any related queries or concerns, David Stewart, the Director of Sales and Marketing for Aurora Packing Company can be reached on (630) 897-0551.

Earlier this week, a Californian company recalled batches of avocadoes due to fear of possible listeria outbreak.
