The Anza Valley Outlook apologizes for the earlier misleading announcement. The owners of the Anza Village Market received word of the Valley Meat Company recall. They did not have the meat shipped to the store and were reimbursed for their order.

The market was on the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service list regarding a shipment of beef that was potentially contaminated with E. coli that came from the Modesto-based Valley Meat Company.

On August 6, the Modesto company recalled about one million pounds of ground beef that could potentially be contaminated with E. coli.

The recall came after an E. coli outbreak in which several people became sick. Federal health officials began investigating the cluster of illnesses after the California Department of Public Health notified them that the E. coli cases matched the same DNA pattern, or "genetic fingerprint."

Meat was recalled from stores in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Texas, Nevada, Washington and Oregon. The recalled products were manufactured from Oct. 2009 through Jan. 2010.

The establishment number on the recalled frozen beef products is EST. 8268 and the production codes are 25709 through 01210.

Food Safety and Inspection Services and the meat establishment were concerned that some products may still be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. The inspection services strongly encourage consumers to check their freezers and immediately discard any product that is the subject of this recall. 

E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure. The very young, seniors and persons with weak immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.

Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
