WASHINGTON, July 17, 2006 - George G. Ruppersberger & Sons, Inc., a Baltimore, Md., firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 315 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

Preparing Ground Beef For Safe Consumption

USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline
1-888-MPHOTLINE or visit www.fsis.usda.gov

Although the product(s) being recalled should be returned to the point of purchase, consumers preparing other ground beef products should heed the following advice.

Consumers should only eat ground beef patties that have been cooked to a safe temperature of 160 °F. When a ground beef patty is cooked to 160 °F throughout, it can be safe and juicy, regardless of color.

The only way to be sure a ground beef patty is cooked to a high enough temperature to kill harmful bacteria is to use an accurate food thermometer.

Color is not a reliable indicator that ground beef patties have been cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria such as E. coli O157:H7.

Eating a pink or red ground beef patty without first verifying that the safe temperature of 160 °F has been reached is a significant risk factor for foodborne illness.

Thermometer use to ensure proper cooking temperature is especially important for those who cook or serve ground beef patties to people most at risk for foodborne illness because E. coli O157:H7 can lead to serious illness or even death. Those most at risk include young children, seniors, and those with compromised immune systems.



The products subject to recall are:
10- pound packages of "GROUND BEEF, NET WEIGHT 10 LBS., KEEP REFRIGERATED." Each package bears the establishment number "Est. 5931" inside the USDA mark of inspection and the package code, "627963."
