UK – Mince recalled at north-east shop after E. coli scare

Evening Express

Beef sold in a north-east shop has been recalled over fears it is infected with potentially deadly E. coli.

Some Costco members who purchased Aberdeen Angus minced beef from the firm’s Westhill store were alerted to the problem earlier this week.

A letter from the meat’s supplier, AK Stoddart, dated September 11, said the affected product had been sold between September 3-7.

It advised that “any product that has been frozen or further processed and not been consumed should be destroyed” but that if any had been “cooked thoroughly and to a high temperature” and eaten it “should not pose any risk to health”.

The recalled mince was also sold in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Watford and Thurrock stores.
