Gene Kennedy ReportingThere is another beef recall where the concern is E. coli contamination. United Food Group recalled some of its ground beef on June 3. This is an expansion of that recall, adding an additional 370,000 pounds of ground beef.
Some of that meat may have been sold at Albertsons grocery stores in Utah. Officials are confident none of it is on the shelves now. The company, SuperValu Inc., recalled the beef sold at Albertsons and Save-A-Lot stores in several states, including Utah.
Adam Johnson with Albertsons Food Safety says, "What people need to do is they need to go back and look in their freezers and just make sure that they don't have any of that product that they are holding onto." Albertsons has signs hanging in its stores letting customers know about the recall.
The meat was sold under several brand names including: Maran's All natural, Miller Meat Company, Stater Brothers, Inter-American Products and Basha's.
If you find beef in your freezer that falls in that questionable sell-by date time frame, either throw it out or take it back for a refund.
The recalled products had sell-by dates from April 20 through May 7. It included Moran's brand meat sold in 1- to 5-pound varieties under UPC numbers 34779 60501, 34779 60000, 34779 96000, 34779 91000, 34779 60010, 34779 96194, 34779 21117. Also recalled was Albertsons 90/10 Sirloin fresh hamburger patties.
Customers can return recalled products to the store for a full refund or exchange. Customers with questions about the recall can call United Food Group's 24-hour hotline at 1-800-325-4164.
