Windsor hospital served recalled beef
Windsor Regional Hospital is one of the places that served recalled ground beef.
Melissa Alexander-Dionisi, the hospital's food services coordinator, said the hospital learned of the recall at 5 p.m. Saturday, an hour after they began serving meat recalled due to the possibility of E. coli contamination.
"When it comes to the patients here at Windsor Regional Hospital, we take patient safety into extreme measures, and we did a report of all the patients that ate the product or potentially ate the product and we went up to visit and confirm whether they ate the product or not," Dionisi said.
No illnesses were reported at Windsor Regional Hospital.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said there has been one reported illness from the beef, which was distributed nationally to retail stores, restaurants and institutions such as hospitals.
The recall is still expanding. It now covers 135 products produced over a seven-month period.
The common link to look for is the establishment number 761, which appears on the packages, cartons or cases.
Affected brand names include Best Value, Irresistibles, Keg, Licks, Maple Lodge Farms and President's Choice.
