Kenosha Beef International Recalls Beef Product Due to Possible
Listeria Contamination
Kenosha Beef International, a Columbus, Ohio, establishment, is recalling approximately 21,427
pounds of ready-to-eat beefsteak patty product that may be contaminated with Listeria
monocytogenes.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 19, 2015 – Kenosha Beef International, a Columbus, Ohio, establishment, is
recalling approximately 21,427 pounds of ready-to-eat beefsteak patty product that may be
contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and
Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The fully cooked beefsteak patties were produced on Jan. 24, 2015. The following product is
subject to recall:
•35.3-lb. boxes of “Fully Cooked Black Angus Ground Beefsteak (chopped and formed)” with
product number 87657 and “use thru” date of 01/24/16.  

The product subject to recall bears the establishment number “EST. 10130” inside the USDA
mark of inspection. This product was shipped to distributors in Illinois and North Carolina for
further distribution to restaurants.

The problem was discovered by a customer of Kenosha Beef International. The customer, a
further processor, tested a sample of product produced the same day as the recalled product,
returning a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes. FSIS and the company have received no
reports of illness due to consumption of these products.

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious
infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and
pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are
affected.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and
convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive
infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause
miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In
addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened
immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Persons in the higher-risk categories who
experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek
medical care and tell the health care provider about eating the contaminated food.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers
of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to
consumers.

FSIS advises all consumers to reheat ready-to-eat product until steaming hot.
