Big Beef Recall

(AP) Tyson Fresh Meats has recalled more than 40-thousand pounds of ground beef.

Samples tested at a Sherman, Texas, plant showed signs of E. coli contamination in meat shipped to Wal-Mart stores in 12 states.

No illnesses have been reported.

The recalled products were sent to Wal-Mart stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.

Wal-Mart has removed the products from its meat cases and is destroying the recalled ground beef still in its possession.

Tyson has recalled 40-thousand, 440 pounds of ground beef, all of which had sell-by dates of June 13th. The ground beef was sold in prepackaged trays that were placed directly into the meat case.

The recalled products include:

One and a-half pound trays of Angus steak burger all natural, 85/15, 6-pound patties; one and one-third pound trays of Angus steak burger all natural, 85/15, extra thick, 4 1/3-pound patties; two and a-quarter pound trays of 73/27 all-natural ground beef; and five and a-half pound trays of 73/27 all-natural ground beef.
