Hamburgers contaminated with E. coli bacteria were caught before they were sold in Dawson City.

“We did have two cases of the patties, but we caught them before they went out for retail sale,” said Bonanza Market owner/operator Paul Derry on Thursday.

“We have not sold those patties.”

On Wednesday, the News reported the contaminated Sunny Dawn frozen burgers were sold at the store over the past month.

E. coli bacteria was found in Sunny Dawn frozen beef patties, bearing Julian date 143-07. The patties were sold in stores in western and northern Canada after May 23.

Anybody with those patties should destroy them, or return them to the store.
