DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado health department says six people are recovering after being hospitalized for salmonella that might be linked to a ground beef recall. Some of the beef products were sold in Utah.
Officials said Thursday a total of 14 cases have been reported in the state but eight did not require hospitalization.
The Denver-based King Soopers grocery chain on Wednesday recalled 466,236 pounds of ground beef products that were distributed to stores in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
The ground beef products were produced from May 23 through June 13 and bear the establishment number "EST. 6250" within the USDA Mark of Inspection, printed on the front of the packages.
