V&T Meat and Food of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and Hiep Thanh Trading of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, are recalling certain raw pork products from the marketplace due to possible E. coli O157:H7 contamination. Consumers, food service establishments, retailers, distributors and manufacturers in Alberta, should not consume, serve, use, or sell certain raw pork products sold by these two retailers/distributors because the raw pork products may be contaminated.
All raw pork products sold from these locations, during the identified time periods, are affected by this recall.
This recall was triggered by the E. coli O157:H7 foodborne outbreak investigation led by Alberta Health Services and supported by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
As the investigation proceeds, if other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings. Alberta Health Services and the CFIA are verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace. Further analysis is under way to determine if these affected products are linked to some of the E. coli O157:H7 illnesses in Alberta.
