To date no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products.

Escherichia coli O157:H7 is a bacterium that causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.

Customers who purchased the recalled products should discard or return them for a full refund. Customers who have questions about the recall can contact Safeway at 1-877-SAFEWAY anytime, or Taylor Farms at 209-830-3141 Monday to Friday, exclusive of holidays, between the hours of 8am-5pm (PST).
