Hannaford recalls ground beef products contaminated with Salmonella


An undetermined amount of fresh ground beef products that may be contaminated with a strain of Salmonella Typhimurium are being recalled by Hannaford, as announced by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service or FSIS.


The products subject to recall are any size package of: 73% Hannaford Regular Ground Beef; 75% Hannaford Regular Ground Beef; 80% Hannaford Regular Ground Beef; 85% Hannaford Regular Ground Beef; 90% Hannaford Regular Ground Beef; 80% Taste of Inspirations Angus Ground Beef; 85% Taste of Inspirations Angus Ground Beef; 90% Taste of Inspirations Angus Ground Beef; 85% Nature's Place Ground Beef; and 90% Nature's Place Ground Beef.


This recall was initiated due to concerns about illnesses caused by an outbreak of salmonellosis that may be associated with use and consumption of fresh in-store ground beef prepared in and purchased at Hannaford stores.


The various ground beef packages bear sell-by dates of December 17, 2011 or earlier and were sold at Hannaford stores throughout Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont. FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers. Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial food borne illnesses.
