Check your freezer: Massive beef recall spreads into New Jersey

More than 3,500 pounds of beef produced at a Newark, New Jersey, facility and shipped to retailers throughout the state and New York have been recalled due to potential E. coli contamination.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, the Newark-based company, G & M Co., issued a recall of “bulk beef cuts and trimmings products” produced June 8, 9 and 10 and stamped with the establishment number M5476 after a recent inspection tested positive for E. coli.

There are no confirmed reports of illness due to consumption of the recalled beef, but officials are advising consumers to check their freezers and dispose of the recalled products.

In addition, anyone who may have ingested the recalled beef and is experiencing illness is being asked to seek medical care.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Jose Morales, plant manager, at (973) 621-7444.
