Nationwide Recalls on Ground Beef, Avocado Oil & More to Be Aware of Right Now

It can never hurt to check out the latest recall announcements, no matter which stores you frequent most. Whether it’s an alert issued by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), manufacturer or your favorite grocers and retailers, these notices have important information that can help consumers protect themselves against potential illness or injury. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of April and May’s latest recalls all in one spot. From ground beef and dairy products to nuts and cooking oils, these are the items you should check for in your kitchen ASAP.

Ground Beef

There are two ongoing nationwide alerts related to ground beef products. Both have been issued due to potential E.coli O157:H7 contamination.

The first announcement is a public health alert regarding ground beef products like patties and chubs sold by Greater Omaha Packing Co., Inc. While the products are off the market, they might still be in your freezer. Look for packages with a “Use/Freeze By” date of April 22, 2024 and USDA inspection stamp of EST.960A.

The second recall alerts us to 16,000 pounds of ground beef sold at Walmart locations across the country. If you have any plastic-wrapped trays of ground beef in your fridge or freezer, you’ll want to check them immediately. Look for establishment number “EST.86P” on the back label and the USDA’s mark of inspection on the front. For more information, check out the full product list with lot codes to see if you might have a recalled item.

There haven’t been any reports of illness related to these announcements so far. However, E.coli O157:H7 can cause severe illness to infected individuals. Ground beef products affected by both recalls should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund as soon as possible. Otherwise, be sure to discard them immediately.
