The FSIS issued a public health alert and not a recall because the beef is no longer available for purchase, but it believes some people may still have the meat in their freezer.
The meal kits were shipped to customers by HelloFresh from July 2 to July 21. The beef arrived in a 10-ounce plastic vacuum packaged package labeled as “Ground Beef 85% Lean/15% Fat” with the code “EST#46481 L1 22 155” or “EST#46481 L5 22 155” printed on the side of the package.
FSIS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health agencies are investigating an E. coli outbreak. The organizations believe that raw ground beef is the likely source of the illnesses, as multiple patients who got sick received ground beef in HelloFresh meal kits, FSIS states in the public health alert.
As with most recalls, the FSIS encourages anyone who has the product to throw it out. More details and images of the labels are available on the USDA recall page.
Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.
Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.
You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.
As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
