An outbreak of salmonellosis in Colorado prompted the recall of 825,769 lbs of ground beef by a California beef company, the U.S. Agriculture Department said on Thursday.
Beef Packers Inc of Fresno, California, is recalling the beef, which was produced from June 5 to 23 and has the establishment number "EST. 31913." The beef may be linked to the Colorado illnesses, USDA said.
The ground beef was shipped to retail distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, and Utah.
Because the meat may have been repackaged and sold under different names, consumers are being advised to check with stores to determine if they bought the recalled meat.
