Meat recalled for sanitation concern

Newswanger Meats of Shiloh announced a voluntary recall of approximately 2,190 pounds of fresh, not frozen beef, pork, chicken and sliced deli products that were possibly produced under insanitary conditions.
Newswanger Meats has determined that these products were produced with the use of a water supply that failed to meet the Ohio Department of Health’s requirements in the Ohio Administrative Code for an approved private water system.
The products subject to recall include 10 pounds fresh beef stew meat, 10 pounds fresh beef cubed steaks, 3 pounds fresh beef strip steaks, 75 pounds fresh ground beef, 5 pounds fresh bratwurst, 5 pounds fresh breakfast sausage links, 3 pounds fresh maple-flavored sausage links, 3 pounds fresh Italian sausage links, 20 pounds fresh pork chops, 10 pounds fresh pork steaks, 8 pounds fresh pork roasts, 1,440 pounds fresh chorizo sausage in 1-pound packages, three rind on carcass hogs, 13 pounds chicken (leg quarters, drumsticks, boneless breast and thighs) and various sliced deli meats.
The fresh beef, pork, chicken and deli products were produced on Oct. 4, 5 and 6. The products bear the establishment number EST. 151 inside the Ohio mark of inspection.
Just above the mark of inspection there is a lot code of 17J04, 17J05, 17J06 and OCT0517. The hog carcasses were sold to Ohio City Provisions in Cleveland, and the chorizo sausage was sold to Fresh Fork Market in Cleveland. The remaining products were sold through the retail store at Newswanger Meats.
The problem was discovered by Newswanger Meats and the Ohio Department of Agriculture Division of Meat Inspection through notification on Oct. 6. Newswanger Meats and ODA inspection personnel observed results from a water sample collected by Richland Public Health on Oct. 4.
The sample was analyzed at a laboratory indicating a positive total coliform bacteria count without a level quantified. The sample was negative for E.coli; however, the presence of other coliform bacteria in the water violates the regulatory requirement, and the supply is determined to be nonpotable. Therefore the nonpotable water supply resulted in the potential creation of insanitary conditions and potential direct product contamination leading to adulteration of the products processed in the facility during this time period.
ODA and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a health-care provider.
As a precaution Newswanger Meats said customers who have purchased these products should not consume them. These products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.
