PT Farm is recalling approximately 15 pounds of lamb products that may be contaminated with E. coli, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The lamb products, a neck and one leg, were derived from a carcass produced on Sept. 6, 2016 and were shipped to a retail store in Somerville, Massachusetts and sold at their retail counter on Sept. 7, 2016.

FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers.

The problem was discovered on Sept. 7, 2016 when the establishment was notified of an E. coli positive water supply sample result and resulting "water boil" notice initiated by the North Haverhill Municipality Water Department located in North Haverhill, New Hampshire.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Peter L. Roy, PT Farm owner, at (603) 787-9199.
