Beef Recall in Canada Expands, New Products Affected

Angela Ayles


Last week, the CFIA and Loblaw Companies Ltd issued a joint recall to warn consumers about the potential health risks (e. Coli) of consuming certain Butcher’s Choice beef products. Since the initial recall, several additional products have been recalled and, now, Cardinal Select brand prime rib beef burgers are also being pulled from shelves.

Here’s what you missed over the weekend:

In addition to the Butcher’s Choice Beef recalls from December 12December 13 and December 14, there was one additional update over the weekend. Click on the links to view the official recalls for each date.

The latest recall has many consumer concerned, not necessarily because it lists a ton of products or because it’s a particularly popular brand of burgers but because it’s the second brand affected by the recall. The beef recall in the summer started out with just one brand affected but quickly expanded to include several other brands and thousands of products.

The specific products affected by the Cardinal brand recall include Cardinal brand Prime Rib Beef Burgers, sold in 1.13 kg packages bearing UPC 0 63351 01561 1. The affected product bears the code BEST BEFORE 2013 JL 31 EST 752.

We’ll keep you posted as more products/brands become affected.
