The product: No Name Club Pack Beef Steakettes and No Name Beef Burgers

The UPC: 0 60383 01321 9 and 0 60383 37333 7, respectively

The details: Sure, the yellow packaging on those No Name burgers and steakettes may be unassuming, and “steakettes” may sound like some delightful beef-themed dance troupe, but these products could be contaminated with E. coli. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning that consuming either of these products “may cause serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses.” The symptoms? Abdominal pain, diarrhea and death, among others. There’s only been one reported illness so far, and we don’t want to fear-monger, but if you’re planning your first barbecue of the season, might we suggest you serve some other brand of nondescript beef?
