Fraser Valley Meats is voluntarily recalling lean and extra-lean ground beef bought between March 5 and March 8 because of a rare strain of e.coli.

“There have been no reported sickness associated with this recall,” said Chris Les, of Fraser Valley Meats.

E.coli 0103 is a strain seldom associated with serious illness, and it’s a voluntary recall that they’re issuing, according to the release.

“We are proceeding with it out of an abundance of caution and our commitment to high standards of food safety,” said Les.

Officials will be conducting a thorough investigation to find the source, and will take steps to prevent it from happening again.

“While the Fraser Health Authority has noted that our procedures meet all food safety standards, we are reviewing food handling procedures, working closely with local food safety officials. Fraser Valley Meats remains committed to providing quality, safe products to our customers,” said Les.
