Cargill Inc., one of the largest beef processors in North American, is recalling ground-beef products sold in western Canada because of possible contamination with E.coli O157 bacteria.
The beef was sold under the Your Fresh Market brand at Wal- Mart Stores Inc. in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said in a statement on its website yesterday.
The recall follows tests results and there have been no reported illnesses, the agency said. It’s carrying out a food- safety investigation.
No one at Minneapolis-based Cargill immediately responded to requests for comment. Its Cargill Meat Solutions unit employs more than 32,000 people at locations across the U.S. and Canada, according to the company’s website.
