Oregon E. coli Outbreak Linked to Ground Beef Sold at New Seasons Market


On November 10, 2019, Oregon health officials announced an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak linked to ground beef sold at New Seasons Markets in the Portland metro area.  New Seasons Market has recalled ground beef sold at any of their three Portland, Oregon stores on the dates ranging from Oct. 19 to Oct. 23, 2019.  

To date, three individuals have tested positive for E. coli O157:H7 after eating ground beef from New Seasons Market Outlets.  Following laboratory testing of the consumed ground beef, Oregon State Public Health Laboratory found that all three victims had genetically matched strains of E.Coli O157:H7. 

The  New Season Market locations that sold the recalled ground beef are located in North Lombard, North Interstate and Cedar Hills. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) advises customers who purchased the ground beef between the dates in question to throw it away immediately.

New Seasons Market has suspended the sale of the ground beef while the Oregon Department of Agriculture conducts an outbreak investigation.
