Waco-Based H&B Packing Co. Recalls Boneless Beef Products

King's Command Foods LLC., has issued a voluntary recall about 63,252 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

H & B Packing out of Waco says their recall includes boneless beef items in 60 lb. boxes and multiple combo bins both with case codes of 69029 and a production date of 3/6/17.

According to a release from the company, the beef items were produced on March 6 and shipped around Texas.

No reports of illnesses from consuming these products have been confirmed. These products have the establishment number "EST". Despite the dominance of STEC O157, at least 150 non-O157 strains of E. coli are known to cause human illness and have been associated with food poisoning outbreaks. Most people infected develop diarrhea and vomiting.

FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in customers' freezers.

If you purchased these products, do not eat them even if you cook them. Products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
