The list of products affected by the beef recall seems to be changing daily.

On Tuesday the CFIA took one product off the list of contaminated products.

Prairie Heritage Producers’ Range-Fed Lean Angus Beef Burgers, 568 g with a UPC of 6 28896 00208 5 was removed from the list, and has been deemed safe.

On Monday three products were added to the growing list:

Ground Beef – Fresh, is sold in a 9.07 kg package, bearing the Establishment number (EST) 761, a product code of 55362 and a production date code format of 11 JL 01 up to including 12 FE 16. This fresh product was originally prepared for Five Guys Enterprises but was also sold frozen.

The second product was manufactured at Establishment 530, New Food Classics located in St. Catharines, Ontario using recalled product received from Establishment 761.

And finally, Country Fried Style Breaded Beef Steak Chopped and Formed, is sold in a 3.90 kg package, bearing the Establishment number (EST) 530, a product code of 50988 and a production code format of 08-Sep-11 up to including 17-Feb-12.


A recent federal health warning to avoid certain beef products due to possible E. coli contamination covers products under a variety of brand names.

Affected brand names include Best Value, Calgary Stampede, Country Morning Gold, Exclusive Selections, Grillhouse, Irresistibles, Keg, Licks, Maple Lodge Farms and PC.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said the beef was produced at Establishment 761 between July 1, 2011 and Feb. 15, 2012. A full list of affected products is below.

The CFIA said there has been one reported illness from the beef, which was distributed nationally to retail stores, restaurants and institutions such as hospitals.

The CFIA said the affected products are identified by the Establishment number 761 that appears on the packages, cartons or cases.

The affected products involved in this recall may be identified by one of the following codes:

  • Bearing a best before date from BB 2012 JA 01 up to and including to BB 2013 FE 15
  • Bearing a production code with a format of 11 JL 01 up to and including 12 FE 15
  • Bearing a 5 digit lot code where the last four digits are 1831 or greater


The CFIA said the investigation is ongoing and as new affected products are identified, they will be added to the list on the agency’s website.

Food contaminated with E. coli may not look or smell spoiled, but eating it may cause serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses.

The CFIA said it is working with retailers and distributors to recall all affected products from the marketplace and is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
