The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service is issuing a Public Health Alert for and halted all imports of beef from XL Beef in Canada. The Edmonton, Alberta-based company issued an initial recall on September 16th for possible E.coli O157:H7 contamination in beef products produced in early September. That recall has been expanded to include nearly 300 products made from late August involving animals slaughtered on August 23rd.

The products subject to the Canadian recall were distributed to establishments in California, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.
