SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah's Department of Health says the state has had at least one report of E. coli illness linked to ground beef that has been recalled from Albertsons stores.

Health department spokeswoman Charla Haley says the man lives in Salt Lake County. He recovered without needing to be hospitalized.

Symptoms of E. coli include stomach cramps that may be severe and diarrhea that may turn bloody within one to three days.

Supervalu Inc. announced a recall of some ground beef sold in its Albertsons and Save-A-Lot stores because it is believed to be contaminated with E. coli.

Most products were sold under the Moran's label at Albertsons stores, including some in Utah.

The recalled products had sell-by dates from April 20 through May 7.
