Excel Corp., a meatpacking unit of Cargill Inc., is recalling 45,030 pounds of ground beef because it may contain harmful E. coli bacteria. The meat was packed in 10-pound cylindrical tubes with a use or freeze by date of April 29, but the meat likely was repackaged by retail stores.
The meat, which was produced at Excel’s Dodge City plant, was sold to distributors in Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Texas.
