E. Coli Scare Prompts Tyson to Recall Ground Beef

Tyson Fresh Meats Inc. is recalling about 131,300 pounds of ground beef that might be contaminated with E. coli.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Wednesday that it
became aware of the problem when Ohio health authorities reported
that a family in Butler County had become ill with E. coli.

Ground beef in the family's home tested positive for the bacteria.

The products being recalled include Kroger-brand ground beef;
Butcher's Brand beef and generic label beef, which were all produced Aug. 23.

The Kroger beef was distributed in Tennessee and Indiana; the
Butcher's beef in North and South Carolina and the generic beef in
Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri,
New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Tyson Foods did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
