The Chief Sanitary Inspectorate issued a warning on Wednesday regarding the detection of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) in beef tartare. Infection with the STEC bacterium may lead to hemorrhagic colitis or, much less frequently, bloodless diarrhea.

Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) was detected in 4 out of 5 samples of a specific batch of beef tartare tested as a result of the activities of the State Sanitary Inspection. “Infection with the STEC bacterium may lead to hemorrhagic colitis or, much less frequently, bloodless diarrhea. In rare cases, a significant deterioration of health may occur, manifesting as hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) or even more rarely as thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura “- informed GIS. The product concerned: Beef tartare, 200 g. Batch number: 1032604. Best before date: April 26, 2024. Producer: Zakłady Mięsne Łuków SA Przemysłowa 15, 21-400 Łuków, veterinary identification number PL 06110266 WE

GIS reported that the manufacturer immediately after receiving information about the product non-compliance initiated the procedure to withdraw the questioned batch from the market. Official food control authorities supervise the process of withdrawing the questioned batch from the market. GIS emphasized that you should not consume this product, and if you experience any disturbing symptoms after consuming the above-mentioned product, you should contact your doctor. Warnings regarding food or products that come into contact with food are regularly published on the website of the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate. These announcements – as GIS emphasizes – are not intended to stigmatize entrepreneurs, but to take immediate action: returning products to the store or withdrawing them from the assortment. Thanks to cooperation with food industry companies, consumers can be informed about the threat quickly and effectively.
