Recall now includes 2.27 kg packages of Country Morning brand frozen burgers

The recall has now been expanded to include the 2.27kg packages of the Country Morning brand beef burgers.

The national recall on some beef burger products has expanded once again.

Now, the Country Morning brand of frozen beef burgers sold in 2.27 kilogram packages are being recalled with concerns they could be contaminated with E. coli 0157:H7.

The product was available at some Co-op and TGP stores in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency originally issued a warning last week about burgers distributed in 1 kilogram packages under the Country Morning brand, and in 2.27 kilogram packages under the No Name brand Club Pack Beef Steakettes at Loblaws-owned stores in Ontario, B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, N.W.T. and Yukon.

There has been one reported illness due to consumption of these products.

E. coli 0157:H7 bacteria can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses.
