Hawaii Big Island Beef - Ground Beef Products.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert due to concerns that specific ground beef products may be adulterated with E. coli O157:H7. A recall was not requested because the products are no longer available for purchase.

The "Hawaii Big Island Beef" brand ground beef products were produced on August 8, 2022. The following products are subject to the public health alert:

  • 1-lb. vacuum sealed packages containing "Ground Beef (80) Fine 1#/pkg" with "Packed 08/08/22" and "Lot 220808" on the label and case code "134R1".
  • 1-lb. vacuum sealed packages containing "Ground Beef (Ln) Fine 1#/pkg" with "Packed 08/08/22" and "Lot 220808" on the label and case code "135R1".
  • 2-lb. vacuum sealed packages containing "Ground Beef (80) Fine 2#/pkg" with "Packed 08/08/22" and "Lot 220808" on the label and case code "134R2".
  • 10-lb. bags containing "Ground Beef (80) Fine 10# Poly Bag" with "Packed 08/08/22" and "Lot 220808" on the label and case code "0134P10".
  • 10-lb. vacuum sealed packages containing "Ground Beef (75) Fine 10# Vac Seal" with "Packed 08/08/22" and "Lot 220808" on the label and case code "130R10".
  • 10-lb. vacuum sealed packages containing "Ground Beef (80) Fine 10# Vac Seal" with "Packed 08/08/22" and "Lot 220808" on the label and case code "134R10".
  • 40-lb. box containing four 10-lb chubs of "Ground Beef (80) Fine 10#" with "Packed 08/08/22" and "Lot 220808" on the label and case code "0134".

The products bear establishment number "EST. 1063" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail and restaurant locations in Hawaii.

The problem was discovered by FSIS during an assessment of the establishment’s production records associated with a sample that tested positive for E. coli O157:H7.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider. E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2-8 days (3-4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Media and consumers with questions regarding the public health alert can contact Matt Fornoff, General Manager of Hawaii Beef Producers, LLC, at (808) 776-1109.
