The President's Choice products in the recall were sent to grocery stores in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada.
Frozen beef is not included in the recall. The products affected were sold in various weights packaged on trays with plastic wrap and from in-store butcher counters. The meat in question was manufactured by JBS Swift Beef Company on Greeley, Colorado. Each box bears the establishment number "EST. 969" inside the USDA mark of inspection as well as the identifying package date of "042109" and a time stamp ranging from "0618" to "1130." However because the product crossed the border and underwent further processing that may be missing on the affected product.
The products include:

There have been no illnesses in Canada associated with the President's Choice products. The CFIA warns though that consuming food with E coli risk serious and possible life-threatening illness.
This recall is related to a similar one within the United States. In the United States 12 people have been hospitalized in connection to the recall. Two of those patients have kidney failure.
The warning came on June 30, 2009 in the United States.
Only an internal temperature of 106 F is considered high enough for ground beef patties. Color is not enough an indication of whether or not beef patties are safe.
