Tyson Meat Recall

Tyson Fresh Meats has recalled more than 40,000 pounds of ground beef and Kentucky is one of the states affected.

Samples tested at a Sherman, Texas, plant showed signs of e.Coli contamination in meat shipped to Wal-Mart stores in 12 states, including Kentucky.

Tyson has recalled over 40,000 pounds of ground beef all of which had sell-by dates of June 13, 2007.

The ground beef was sold in prepackaged trays that were placed directly into the meat case.

No illnesses have been reported. Wal-Mart has removed the products from its meat cases and is destroying the recalled ground beef still in its possession.

Both Wal-Mart locations in Bowling Green said that they didn’t have the recalled meat.
