PT Farms E. coli Outbreak Lawsuits

PT Farm, LLC, a North Haverhill, N.H. establishment, recalled approximately 8,800 pounds of raw beef products that might have been contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

The raw, intact and non-intact beef product items (ground beef, ground beef patties and other sub-primal cuts) were produced between June 6 and June 16, 2016.

FSIS was notified of an E. coli O157:H7 illness cluster on July 20, 2016. Working in conjunction with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, FSIS determined that there was a link between the beef products from PT Farm and this illness cluster. Based on epidemiological investigation, 14 case-patients were identified with illness onset dates ranging from June 15 to July 10, 2016. Most of the 14 illnesses were reported from New Hampshire (10), with 2 reported from Massachusetts, 1 from Maine, and 1 from Vermont. Traceback for 11 case-patients for whom data was available led back to a single slaughter date at PT Farm.  FSIS continued to work with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services on this investigation.

All cases have been resolved.
