Recalled Ground Beef Sold at Some Local Sam’s Club Stores

Raw Ground Meat

There has been a recall of ground beef that is potentially tainted with E. coli bacteria. Some of the ground beef packages were sold at local Sam’s Club stores.

The contaminated beef comes from National Beef Packaging Co. of Dodge City, Kansas. While the recalls were mainly targeted for the southeast, the meat was sent to several distributors, who may have repackaged them and sent them across the U.S. for consumers.

The Sam’s Club stores pulled the ground beef packages subject to the recall and have been contacting people who recently bought them. They also are blocking any possible sales of the recalled beef packages. WalMart stores have not been affected by the recall.
