Fairbank Farms, a U.S. ground beef producer, said on Wednesday it is voluntarily recalling beef patties sold to Shaw’s Supermarkets in New England because of concerns about bacterial contamination.
Fairbank Farms said the patties could have been purchased by consumers in that area on Wednesday between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m.
The patties were shipped to stores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont but have now been pulled from store shelves, the company said. Customers may get a full refund or exchange.
The meat producer said the patties may have been contaminated with a form of E.coli, a bacteria commonly found in human intestines. Customers with health concerns should contact their physician, the company said.
