Ground Beef Recall

DETROIT (AP) — Federal food safety officials say ground beef recalled by a Detroit business may have been sent to stores in 10 states.

According to an announcement Thursday, the U.S. agriculture department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says it has reason to believe recalled beef was sent to retail outlets in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

Wolverine Packing Co. announced Monday it was recalling 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli.

FSIS had said 11 people were sickened. Messages seeking an updated figure were left Friday.

Consumers can see a list of recalled products and potentially affected stores on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s website.
