This past week, the United States Department of Agriculture and J&B Group, Inc., of St. Michael, Minn., recalled over 2,500 pounds of beef sirloin products due to products being misbranded and contain an undeclared allergen. The products contain milk, a known allergen, which is not noted on the label.

E. coli O157:H7 causes a diarrheal illness, often with bloody stools. There are cases of this illness that have become fatal. So seek immediate medical attention.

The products subject to recall are:

  • 10.5-lb cases of 28 count, 6 oz. "ELLISON MEAT COMPANY BEEF SIRLOIN TOP BUTT STEAK, CAP OFF, NO ROLL, MARINATED," with an identifying case code of "62149."
  • 10-lb cases of 16 count, 10 oz. "ELLISON MEAT COMPANY BEEF SIRLOIN TOP BUTT STEAK CAP OFF / TENDERIZED WITH FICIN & BROMELAIN," with an identifying case code of "62151."


The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "EST. 15805" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were produced between Jan. 1, 2011, and Sept. 7, 2011, and were distributed for institutional use in Mont., N.D. and Texas. It should be noted that consumers may not have access to the above labeling information.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact the company's Vice President of Supply Chain, Russ Sjoquist, at 763-497-3913.

If you suffer from food poisoning, you need to get immediate medical care. If it continues or there are long term affects, you should contact an attorney concerning the problem. Early investigation can include the collection of samples, checking for health alerts, and the proper notifying of those who caused the problem.
