Contaminated ground beef sickens 10 in Vermont

UPDATED 3:40 p.m. ET: The Vermont Department of Health says 10 people in the state have become sick from ground beef being recalled by Cargill Beef. 

The 10 became sick between June 6 and June 26. Three were hospitalized and all have recovered, according to health officials.

Original story:

SCARBOROUGH, Maine -- Hannaford Supermarkets is alerting consumers that Cargill Beef is voluntarily recalling 29,339 pounds of ground beef that may contain salmonella.

The 85-percent-lean ground beef was produced at Cargill's plant in Wyalusing, Pa., on May 25, and repackaged for sale to consumers by customers of the Kansas-based company.

Cargill President John Keating says in a statement, "Food-borne illnesses are unfortunate and we are sorry for anyone who became sick from eating ground beef we may have produced."

Hannaford's says consumers should check their ground beef for "use or sell by" dates between May 29 and June 16. Refunds will be offered for ground beef with those dates that is returned.
