BBQ Bummer: 29,000 Pounds of Ground Beef Recalled
Salmonella strikes again.
Cargill Beef is recalling 29,339 pounds of ground beef, telling consumers that the batch may contain salmonella. The ground beef (85 percent lean) was produced at Cargill's plant in Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, on May 25, and sold at Hannaford Supermarkets.
"Food-borne illnesses are unfortunate and we are sorry for anyone who became sick from eating ground beef we may have produced," said Cargill President John Keating in a statement.
A spokesperson for Hannaford's says consumers should check their ground beef for "use or sell by" dates between May 29 and June 16. (Any meat discovered by consumers at this point will likely be frozen.)
