EDMONTON – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning people not to eat a brand of beef steak sold in an Edmonton store because it may be contaminated with potentially dangerous E. coli.

The agency says several people have become sick after eating Kirkland brand strip loin grilling steaks sold at Costco.

The steaks were sold at the store’s 50th Street location and have packing dates ranging from Sept. 4 to Sept. 7.

The CFIA doesn’t say which beef plant the steaks came from or if the product could be in other stores, but says it is working with the manufacturer to remove the steaks from the marketplace.

Since Sept. 16, the agency has issued at least seven recall alerts for XL Foods Inc. ground beef products made at the company’s Lakeside plant in Brooks, Alta.

Canada revoked the plant’s permit to export beef to the U.S. on Sept. 13 at the request of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which is also recalling XL Foods products in eight states.

  1. I never understood why I was bombing frozen steaks from Auzzie to an Edm freezer. The driver made jokes about me fatiguing and then got tired. The 300lb+ bench co-worker fatigued a tiny bit but we were out of there an hr early. Was the last job Diversified gave me before they realized I smoked pot off the job, and that I stunk after coming to a shift being locked out my my crazy Misery-but-weak-nurse landlord. A typical Albertan property owner.
    Maybe they need a local meat marketing Crown.
    This is reason to shop at Loblaws. They are a good investment; spend a billion stopping internal thefts yet let poor people steal. I wish I wasn’t so hard on Halifax for not having a day labourer. Edmonton doesn’t have a day labourer either. I can walk across a Prairie winter city at night and steal food until 1st paycheck, I don’t think any Conservative MPs can. Sadly, no workers in the Edmonton Labor Ready can protect their women in a fight according to Tesco test…

    • It was my one good day in Edmonton. I play kick boxed with another out-of-towner splitting a six, and saw a hockey in the only crappy cdn team city. Then a decided being drunk and stoned was the only way to survive my moronic (lack of) employers. What a bunch of #$%^ing idiots.

      • ….I looked for peat moss researchers. The one who wrote a 1926 paper was dead, the peat long turned to suburbs. The other when went to an Illinois University in 2006. Smart. (purposefully flashes back to Nam).
