Tyson Fresh Meats, of Wallula, Washington, is voluntarily recalling approximately 16,743 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department 4 of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The products subject to recall include:

  • 60-pound boxes containing six 10-pound chubs of "ROUND, COARSE GROUND BEEF, 85/15."

The problem was discovered through routine FSIS microbiological sampling at another federally inspected establishment. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.

The ground beef was produced on Feb. 16, 2007 and was sent to distributors in Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
