E. Coli Beef

E. Coli Beef, A national recall of beef products that may be contaminated by E. coli O157: H7 was prompted by an illness in Alberta linked to products from a Saskatoon company.

Canadian Food Inspection Agency specialist Garfield Balsom said Tuesday he was aware of one person in Alberta who became ill from the contamination.

“That was the trigger for our original investigation, a report in the middle of February,” Balsom said. “That started out the food safety investigation.”

The closure of a company behind a national recall of ground beef means 250 people have lost their jobs in Saskatchewan and Ontario.

The company went out of business last month about a week after the agency began investigating a possible E. coli contamination case.

New Food Classics plants in Saskatchewan and Ontario, together employed about 250 members of the United Food and Commercial Workers union.
