WASHINGTON ― Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. (C.M.S.), Wichita, Kan., announced Nov. 3 it was recalling approximately 1,084,384 pounds of ground beef that were produced at its Wyalusing, Pa., plant because of possible E. coli O157:H7 contamination.

Cargill learned the product may be contaminated after the Food Safety and Inspection Service (F.S.I.S.) returned a confirmed positive on a sample of product produced Oct. 8. The ground beef products subject to recall were produced between Oct. 8 and 11 and distributed to retail establishments nationwide.

"No illnesses have been associated with this product," said John Keating, president of Cargill Regional Beef. "We are working closely with the U.S.D.A. to remove the product from the marketplace."

Almost one month earlier, on Oct. 6, C.M.S. announced a recall of approximately 844,812 pounds of frozen ground beef patties that were produced at its Butler, Wis. plant because the product may have been contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.
