Ground beef recalled

Over 60,000 pounds of ground beef has been recalled after the US Department of Agriculture’s routine testing found traces of  E. coli in the meat. The bacteria was found in an Ohio processing plant regulated by the National Beef Packing Co. So far there has been no reports of illnesses linked with the contaminated beef.

A large part of the southeast has been affected by the recall, including Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Carolina and Tennessee. However, some meat may have been distributed nationwide. The beef was shipped to Kroger, Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart, Winn Dixe and Publix stores.

If your someone you love has become seriously ill due to contaminated food, contact the Charleston defective food product attorneys of the Steingberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.
