Beef E coli warning expanded

Beef recall now applies to Central Saanich Thrifty Foods store.

CENTRAL SAANICH — Thrifty Foods is informing the public that beef from their stores — including their Central Saanich location — is now part of a recall over potential contamination with E. coli bacteria.

A public warning was issued on Sept. 29 by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. That warning was the initial news that beef from XL Foods may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. The CFIA is warning the public, distributors and food service establishments not to consume, sell, or serve the beef products described on their website at www.inspection.gc.ca/recalls.

In a media relase Sept. 30 Thrifty Foods stated it has been affected by the recall at its stores in Central Saanich, Quadra/Cloverdale, Admirals Walk, Hillside, Tuscany Village, Saltspring Island and at locations in Vancouver. The affected beef products have been removed from store shelves and to date, there have been no reported illness from Thrifty Food products.

The affected products are associated with the same XL Foods manufacturing dates of Aug. 24, 27, 28, 29 and Sept. 5, 2012, as the previously recalled ground beef products. The trace out from XL to secondary and tertiary distributors, manufacturers and retailers could result in a large number of affected products over a wide range of codes and dates.
