The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is warning the public not to consume the Cardinal Select brand Prime Rib Beef Burgers because they may be contaminated with E. coli.
The burgers are sold in 1.13 kg packages bearing the code BEST BEFORE 2013 JL 31 EST 752.
The recall is the result of an ongoing food safety investigation being conducted at Cardinal Meat Specialists Ltd. based in Brampton, Ont.
"The investigation was initiated as a result of recent product testing associated with an outbreak investigation," the CFIA said in a statement. "There may be recalls of additional products as the investigation at this facility continues."
Last week, Loblaws voluntarily removed packages of Butcher's Choice Hickory Barbecue and Garlic Peppercorn beef burgers from its shelves after the CFIA discovered traces of E. coli in them.
Those burgers were also produced at Cardinal Meat Specialists Ltd.
