Kroger Ground Beef Recall Due to E. coli Risk in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Ohio

Attorney Fred Pritzker is leading our E. coli litigation team in an investigation of a Kroger ground beef recall due to possible contamination with E. coli O157:H7, which can cause colitis, hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). You can contact Fred for a free consultation here. Our E. coli lawyers recently won $4,500,000 for a young woman who developed HUS after eating beef contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

Kroger Company recalled Kroger brand ground beef (73%) sold in 3 pound containers in Kroger stores located in the following cities:

Greater Cincinnati, including Northern Kentucky, Dayton, OH and South Eastern Indiana, Indiana (except SW IN, -Evansville-), Illinois, Eastern Missouri.

The ground beef recalled by Kroger contained beef trim later recalled by XL Foods, Inc., a Canadian company. Testing of raw boneless beef trim product from XL Foods, Inc., confirmed positive for E. coli O157:H7 on September 3, 2012.

There is evidence that the XL Foods beef trim used in the recalled Kroger ground beef was produced under unsanitary conditions by XL Foods, which resulted in a high event period (a period when the trim from carcasses exhibited an unusually high frequency of positive findings for the possible presence of E. coli O157:H7). Therefore, ground beef containing recalled XL Foods beef trim is considered adulterated under U.S. law, meaning anyone sickened by the beef can sue XL Foods under strict liability laws.
