Texas company recalls 16,000 pounds of beef

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Nearly 16,000 pounds of beef products sent to some restaurants in Arizona are being recalled because of possible E. coli contamination, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The USDA said the boxes of skirt steak and seasoned fajita meat were shipped from PFP Enterprises in Fort Worth, TX, to restaurants and grocery stores in Arizona, Oklahoma, Texas and Puerto Rico in December.

Consumers should look for the establishment number EST 34715, according to the USDA.

Consumers can still safely ingest the product if they grill the meat to an internal temperature of 145 degrees, and then let sit three minutes off the grill. Using a food thermometer is the only way to ensure the beef is cooked to 145 degrees to kill harmful bacteria, said the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The USDA hadn't released the full list of where the meat was distributed, but we do know some might have gone to Studio Movie Grill in Scottsdale.

The dine-in theater buys sliced beef tenderloin that is on the recall list.

"We are investigating the matter, but have pro-actively removed all Patterson meat products off our shelves and our menu until further notice," Studio Movie Grill said in a statement.

The USDA said the following products are subject to recall:

  • 10.5-pound boxes of Beef Outside Skirt Steak, with a pack date of 12/13/13
  • 20-pound boxes of Studio Movie Grill Beef Tenderloin Sliced, with a pack date of 12/05/13
  • 15-pound boxes of Preseasoned Beef for Fajita, with a use by date of 1/13/14
  • 40-pound boxes of Southwest Style Beef Skirts, with a pack date of 12/5/13
  • 20-pound boxes of Patterson Food Processors Beef Skirt Seasoned, with a pack date of 12/9/13
  • 10-pound boxes of Preseasoned Beef for Fajitas, with a pack date of 12/9/2013
  • 40-pound boxes of Preseasoned Beef for Fajitas w/Binder, with a pack date of 12/9/2013
  • 12-pound boxes of Seasoned Beef for Fajitas, containing 6, 2-pound packs, with a use by date of 1/15/14
  • 12-pound boxes of Mexican Style Beef for Fajita, containing 6 2-pound packs, with a use by date of 1/11/14
