Calif. Ground Beef Recalled Over Concerns of E. Coli Contamination

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Around 3,170 pounds of ground beef products produced by a California company were recalled Monday due to concerns about E. coli contamination.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service has announced that a batch of beef produced at American Food Services, out of Pico Rivera, Calif., may be contaminated. The FSIS was made aware of the possible contamination after another federally regulated establishment contacted them after receiving what they believed was suspect product from the company.
Recalled products range from 10-20 pound cases of ground beef patties to 60-pound cases of lean taco grind ground beef. The potentially-contaminated products were produced Jan. 31 and distributed to restaurants in southern California.
