Canadian News: Beef Recall Expanded Again – Now Cuts of Meat + Ground Meat

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is now urging consumers to ask stores where they get their beef as they expanded the recall to include steaks, roasts, sausages and other cuts of meat in addition to the original (expanded) ground beef.

You can check the various lists on the CFIA website to see if the meat you have is recalled.  Due to the size of the list, and the fact they are all on different pages, this page which sorts by store selling the items, may be of more use.

    Oh my! That’s getting a bit scary. I’ve stopped buying beef for a while. Going to see if I can find some locally.

    I am actually quite surprised the local farmers market has not increased their prices

    Oh my god cook your food and you wont get sick . I have beef I have eaten beef this whole time I cook my meat I clean up after and we have been fine . No one wants to get sick but so much around us can make us sick . All this is doing is putting fear in to eating beef what will be next .

    I’m pregnant and have a 3 year old child. Pregnant women, small children and elderly individuals are more likely to contract e coli or get seriously sick from it. I’m avoiding all beef products cooked by other people people (i.e. resturarants, fast food etc.). I also haven’t bought any beef lately, mostly because I have a food aversion to it but I still wouldn’t feel comfortable consuming xl beef while pregnant or giving it to my children. I know that if you cook it well, it should be fine but the risk doesn’t seem to be worth it for me. Now I did hear that Fortino’s doesn’t get their beef from XL and I told the hubby if he wants any beef it’s the only store I feel comfortable buying it from right now. I’d rather be safe then sorry later on.

    We just bought and ate some prime rib roast from metro yesterday. I knew about the ground beef but I just saw they extended it to other cuts. I see that it’s not on the list yet but I’m a bit worried because it seems that they have delay updates. I wonder why the stores don’t pull all the beef products from XL off the shelves??

    If you look at the FAQ on the link on the CFIA website, you’ll see what that plant in Alberta is doing with all the contaminated meat….THEY’RE COOKING IT!! if you’re worried about your ground beef, don’t eat it raw! 😉

    • FallenPixels says:

      No, they have been shut down so they are not rendering or cooking anything

      The CFIA announces that it has temporarily suspended the licence to operate Establishment 38 – XL Foods Inc., in Brooks, Alberta. The CFIA determined that adequate controls for food safety were not fully implemented in the facility

    Parent, e Coli Comes from feces

    @Amanda….yum!yum! LOL… Some Loblaws stores carry Beretta beef and I recently purchased some “hormone/antibiotic free” ground beef from Costco, Both are reasonably priced. Costco beef is packaged tube style and distributed by Spring Creek, and the Beretta beef is available at the butcher counter at Loblaws. They are not part of any recall or affiliated with the XL Foods/Meats.
