Surprisingly, Loblaw Companies latest beef burger recall still has not been posted on their main website, nor local flyer websites for Loblaws, No Frills, nor Your Independant Grocer. We have contacted PR@loblaw.ca to find out why the following recall is not posted.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Loblaw Companies Ltd. are warning the public not to consume the Butcher's Choice Beef Burgers described below, because these products may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 bacteria.

Two Butchers Choice Burger Varieties Recalled As Testing Continues

The original recall for  Butcher's Choice Hickory Barbecue Beef Burgers 1.13 KG UPC 0 60383 89364 4, has now been expanded to include Butcher's Choice Garlic Peppercorn Beef Burgers 1.13 KG UPC 0 60383 89363 7 These products have been distributed nationally. This recall is the result of E. coli O157:H7 product testing by the CFIA related to an ongoing outbreak investigation.

CFIA Advises Butchers Choice Caution Pending Further Test Results

The CFIA is currently testing additional products collected from across the country. The recall may be further updated to include other products as test results are received.
