A recent federal health warning to avoid certain beef products due to possible E.coli contamination has been expanded to cover 135 products under a variety of brand names.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the beef was produced at Establishment 761 between July 1, 2011 and Feb. 15, 2012.
The CFIA says there has been one reported illness from the beef, which was distributed nationally to retail stores, restaurants and institutions such as hospitals.
Affected brand names include Best Value, Calgary Stampede, Country Morning Gold, Exclusive Selections, Grillhouse, Irresistibles, Keg, Licks, Maple Lodge Farms and PC.
The CFIA says the affected products are identified by the Establishment number 761 that appears on the packages, cartons or cases.
They may also have a best before date from Jan. 1, 2012 up to and including Feb. 15, 2013 and a production code with a format of 11 JL 01 up to and including 12 FE 15.
A full listing of the affected beef products can be found at the CFIA website.
The CFIA says it is working with retailers and distributors to recall all affected products from the marketplace and is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
