Busy Parent Briefing: Tyson Recalls Ground Beef Due to E. ColiStephanie Precourt
Check your freezer for yet another food recall. Tyson is voluntarily recalling over 40,000 pounds of ground beef chuck produced in its Dakota City, Nebraska plant after a sample of the product analyzed by the USDA was found to contain E. coli O157:H7.
There have been no illnesses reported and — if cooked properly — the contaminated ground chuck should not be a danger. But, better safe than sorry, so check that freezer.
The beef to watch out for had a best before or freeze by date of November 13, 2011 and is 80/20 ground beef chuck with USDA code Est. 245C and production code D-0381-BH on the package. The beef was sold in states including Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Tyson also provided a list of stores where the product was sold on their site.
