E. coli concerns spark recall of burgers and steaks in Canada

Several nations banned Canadian beef imports in the wake of a case of BSE.


The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning people not to eat certain beef products because they may be contaminated with E. coli bacteria.

The alert covers Country Morning Beef Burgers in one-kilogram packs and No Name Club Pack Beef Steakettes in 2.27-kilogram packs.

They were sold in several chain stores in Ontario, western Canada, and Northwest Territories.
