Report 2 weeks ago
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
“FSIS is issuing a public health alert because approximately 70 pounds of raw beef ravioli products, produced by P&S Ravioli Company, a Philadelphia, Pa. establishment, may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. A recall was not requested because the affected product is no longer available for purchase. However, some product may be in consumers’ freezers.
FSIS advises consumers who have purchased these products should not consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
The frozen, raw ground beef ravioli items were produced on April 30, 2020 and bear establishment number “EST. 2736” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a limited number of retail locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
- 13-oz. boxes containing “P&S RAVIOLI COMPANY 12 JUMBO MEAT RAVIOLI” with a use-by date of 11/30/2020 and lot code 20121.
The problem was discovered when P&S Ravioli Company was notified by their third-party laboratory that a sample was positive for E. coli O157:H7, but the products associated with the sample had already been shipped into commerce. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
