Illnesses Lead to Ground Beef Recall
A Minnesota meat company is recalling about 188,000 pounds of ground beef due to possible e. Coli contamination and links to six cases of illness in Wisconsin and California. The affected ground beef -- produced by Rochester Meat Company of Rochester, Minnesota on October 30 and November 6, 2007 -- was not available for purchase by consumers, but was distributed to restaurants and food service organizations nationwide. A News Release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) contains detailed information about the recall.
