Detroit packing company recalls 1.8 million pounds of ground beef
Portland Press Herald - 5/20/2014.
By Robin Erb, Detroit Free Press - A Detroit-based business is recalling about 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, according to health officials. The ground beef products were produced between March 31 and April 18 and shipped to distributors for restaurant use throughout Michigan and into Ohio, Massachusetts and Missouri.
