Consumers are being warned not to eat various beef products from Ranchers Beef Ltd. in Balzac, Alta., because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 bacteria.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency warning, issued Thursday, expands the list of products and stores where the beef has been sold.
A list of the affected products is available at http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/corpaffr/recarapp/2007/20071115e.shtml
The agency says the meat is likely no longer available for sale. Consumers who bought these products and still have them in their freezers are advised not to eat them.
There have been no reported illnesses.
For more information, consumers can call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342 / TTY 1-800-465-7735 (8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET, Monday to Friday).
