COMPANY RECALLS BEEF PATTIES

Consumers who have hamburger patties in their freezer are being asked to check whether the meat is part of a batch that may be contaminated by potentially deadly E. coli bacteria.

About 600,000 pounds of frozen ground beef patties produced between June 24 and July 10 at a Glenmark Industries processing plant in Chicago were recalled Friday because some of the meat may contain the bacteria.

The Department of Agriculture learned of the problem when a customer became ill after eating one of the patties.

Patties subject to the voluntary recall can be identified by the following product names and codes:

President's Choice, 8179 followed by 16 through 24; President's Choice, 8195, A through H; Glenmark, 1768, 23 and 24; 1778 by 18- 24; 1828 by 08-23; 1878, 07; 1918, 15-23; 1958, 22-24; and 1968 by 08-23; Glenmark 1758, 08-15; 1778, 08-17; and 1878, 07-15; Glenmark, 1768 followed by 08-23; and 1898, 07-15; P&C Foods, 1828, 22 or 23; Big M Supermarket, 1828, 19-21; and Armour, date codes: 8175, 8182, 8187, 8189, 8190, 8191, 8196 and 8197.
