Problem Burgers – Yet Another Recall

November 27, 2007 | By More

A line of frozen beef burgers has been recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency over concerns they might be contaminated with E. coli. The CFIA and manufacturer Cardinal Meat Specialists warn the public not to consume any of the frozen burgers, which are marketed under the Compliments and Cardinal Roadhouse brands, among others. The following products have been voluntarily recalled as they might be tainted by E. coli O157:H7 bacteria: – Cardinal Roadhouse Beef Burgers, 20 pcs., 5 lb. box, product code 01 1697 – Compliments Beef Burgers Super 6, 1.36 kg (8 x 6 oz), best before 08JUN14 or 08JUN15 – Compliments Traditional Beef Burgers, 1.36 kg (12 x 4 oz), best before 08JUN15- Compliments Three Cheese Beef Burgers, 1.13 kg (8 x 5 oz), best before 08JUN22 – Compliments Peppercorn & Garlic Beef Burgers, 1.13 kg (8 x 5 oz), best before 08JUN14 – Compliments The Pulled Porkshire, 680 g, best before 08JUN15 – Longo’s Ultimate beef burgers, 907 g (8 x 113 g), product code 1697. All the products were distributed nationally, and there have been no reported illnesses from eating them. Foods contaminated by E. coli don’t appear spoiled but the bacteria can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses, with symptoms including severe abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea.
