Ground Beef Recall Expands, Includes Wyoming Stores
Los Angeles – A Los Angeles-based food supplier has
expanded a voluntary recall of ground beef products because they may be contaminated with the E.-coli bacteria. United Food Group says it expanded the recall of 75-thousand pounds of ground beef to include an additional 370-thousand pounds, based on "unspecified concerns" raised by California's health services department. The recalled products were shipped to grocery stores in Wyoming, California and other Western states under brand names Moran's All Natural, Miller Meat Company, Stater Brothers, Inter-American Products, and Basha's. Affected stores in Colorado include Albertsons. It's unclear
whether Save-A-Lot stores in the state are included. United Food Group senior vice president Todd Waldman says the company's chief concern is consumers' health and that it's working closely with state and federal officials on the recall.
