A possible salmonella contamination has caused Cargill Meat Solutions to voluntarily recall nearly 15 tons of ground beef.
The defective products were distributed in seven different states and were produced on May 25, 2012. After this, the beef in question was shipped to distribution centers that are located in New York, Connecticut and Maine. It was then sold in Hannaford supermarkets in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Massachusetts.
The ‘use-by’ date on the product has already passed, but officials are concerned that consumers may have put the beef items in their freezers for later use.
Officials told all consumers to check the beef products in order to make sure that the ‘use or sell by’ date is not between May 29 and June 16. If so, it should not be used and consumers have been promised a full refund. The recall is still under investigation at this time.
