Earth Fare and the beef product recall

Posted By on Thu, Jul 2, 2009 at 11:05 AM

Earth Fare says it has not been affected by the recall of beef products from JBS Swift Beef Company due to E.coli contamination since their beef is supplied by small-scale, local ranches. JBS Swift Beef Company, a Greeley, Colo., establishment is voluntarily expanding its June 24 recall to include approximately 380,000 pounds of assorted beef primal products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. Earth Fare’s beef products come from Montana Ranch, a co-op of small farms and ranches in the mid-west, and Hickory Nut Gap Farm, located in Fairview, NC.  The company has never received its beef from JBS Swift Beef Company, the source of the contaminated beef, and will not do so in the future.
