Veinte toneladas de carne contaminada con E. Coli comienzan a ser retiradas del mercado

La bacteria E. coli puede provocar deshidratación, diarrea con sangre y cólicos abdominales, en casos graves, la muerte

SANTA PAULA, CALIFORNIA  MAY 21: Butchers at Old Fashion Country Butcher process meat as they work to meet increased demand due to COVID-19 related shortages on May 21, 2020 in Santa Paula, California. There has been greater support for smaller meat operations lately as supply chains from factories have been disrupted. The meat industry is currently working at 70% as COVID-19 risks have kept U.S. plants below capacity for months. The separation of work stations means fewer people on production lines, and 22 meatpacking plants have closed in the last two months as a result of the pandemic. Prices are increasing as a result of all this and many stores are placing limits on meat purchases to avoid people stockpiling. Butchers at Old Fashion Country Butch follow strict wellness checks daily and follow the standard federal safety procedures. "We are much busier," says owner Kent Short. "People are aware there's a shortage and are seeing a resultant price increase. People also want more security in terms of knowing where their meat is coming from. We believe this could go on for another 6-8 months. Meat warehouses have been cleared that could have been stockpiled."  (Photo by Brent Stirton/Getty Images)

Lakeside Refrigerated Services ha comenzado a retirar del mercado aproximadamente unas 20 toneladas de productos de carne molida cruda que podrían estar contaminados con E. coli, informó el Servicio de Inspección y Seguridad Alimentaria (FSIS) del Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos.

La empresa basada en Swedesboro, Nueva Jersey, informó que ese lote de carne comenzó a ser distribuido el 1 de junio de 2020.

El Departamento de Agricultura determinó que el producto identificado con el código EST 46841 que se distribuyó en diversos establecimientos minoristas, entre ellos Walmart, debería ser retirado del mercado debido a la situación de peligro para la salud que conlleva su consumo.

El Servicio de Inspección y Seguridad Alimentaria indicó que los 19 mil kilos de carne molida probablemente contaminados con la cepa Escherichia coli O157: H57 se vendieron a través de las marcas Thomas Farms y Marketside Butcher.

El problema se descubrió durante las pruebas de rutina, sin embargo, no se han confirmado reacciones adversas por el consumo de los siguientes productos:

Pasteles de carne de 1 libra con lote P-53934-28
Envases al vacío de 1 libra código de lote P-53298-82
Empanadas de carne de vacuno de 4 libras con lote P-53937-45
Pasteles de carne de vacuno de un cuarto de libra con lote P-53944-10
Pasteles de carne de vacuno de un cuarto de libra con lote P-53935-25
Carne fresca de vacuno de una libra con lote P-53930-18

La bacteria E. coli puede provocar deshidratación, diarrea con sangre y cólicos abdominales, pero en los casos graves podría ocasionar insuficiencia renal y la muerte de los pacientes.

La FSIS ha recomendado a los consumidores que si detectan estos productos los desechen o los regresen a la tienda donde los adquirieron.
