Chilliwack Butcher recalls meat due to E. coli

Fraser Health has issued an alert about raw ground beef products produced by Fraser Valley Meats.

The health authority says raw lean and extra lean ground beef produced and sold between March 5th and March 8th from the butcher shop may be contaminated with E. coli.

A sample tested positive, but Fraser Health says there were no food safety issues with the process in which the products were prepared.
