Kroger expands beef products recall

The Kroger Co. is expanding its beef products recall after USDA informed the retailer that beef products supplied by Nebraska Beef are linked to E.coli induced illnesses in Michigan and Ohio.


As a precaution, Kroger is removing all ground beef supplied by Nebraska Beef during the dates provided by the USDA.


Private Selection Natural ground beef sold in 16 oz. packages that were in the self-service meat case will be recalled. The "sell by" dates for this product are July 11 through July 21, 2008. The product was available at all Kroger stores (including Kroger Mid-Atlantic and stores in Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Knoxville, Tenn.) and Dillons, Fred Meyer, Baker's, Smith's and Fry's.


The expanded recall also includes ground beef products in Styrofoam tray packages wrapped in clear cellophane or purchased from an in-store service counter from various Kroger, QFC, Fry's, Ralphs, Smith's, Baker's, King Soopers and City market stores.
