…and it just wouldn’t be the end of the week without yet another ground beef recall

July 23, 2009

A ground beef recall has been issued for nearly half a million pounds of meat distributed to Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming, due to the possibility that it may be contaminated with a treatment-resistant strain of Salmonella.

At least 14 people in Colorado have been identified as part of a salmonella outbreak that may be linked to ground beef manufactured by King Scoopers, Inc. of Denver. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall on Wednesday for approximately 466,236 pounds of ground beef.

The meat was sold in both chubs, trays and patties, and all carry an establishment number of “EST. 6250.” The chubs have a use-by/sell-by date between “05/31/09” and “06/21/09,” the tray packs have a use-by/sell-by date between “06/0209” and “06.23.09,” and the patties have a use-by/sell-by date between “06.01.09” and “06.22.09.”
