Tyson Fresh Meats Inc. has recalled about 131,300 pounds of ground beef that could be contaminated with E. coli. The U.S. Department of Agriculture became aware of the problem when Ohio health authorities reported that a family had become ill with E. coli. Ground beef in that family’s home tested positive for the bacteria. The products being recalled include Kroger-brand ground beef and Butcher’s Brand beef and generic label beef, all of which were produced on August 23rd. The Kroger beef was distributed in Tennessee and Indiana; the Butcher’s beef distributed in North and South Carolina. The generic beef was distributed in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
Once again, there were so many recalls since the September issue that we were unable to get them all in this issue.
