E-coli Fears Lead to Massive Beef Recall

The Associated Press reports that Oklahoma-based National Steak and Poultry “is voluntarily recalling about 248,000 pounds of beef it said might be contaminated with a strain of E. coli bacteria.”  The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service “determined there is an association between non-intact steaks…and illnesses in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, South Dakota and Washington.”  In a statement, the company indicated that the recalled beef was “limited to beef products sold primarily to the Moe’s, Carino’s Italian Grill, and KRM restaurants in the six states.”
