Safeway Expands Ground Beef Recall
Safeway is voluntarily expanding its Sept. 22 recall of ground beef items to include additional dates and states.
The Pleasanton,Calif.-based supermarket operator says it was informed by Interstate Meat Distributors that some of the ground beef products produced for Safeway included trimmings that were subject to XL Foods Inc.'s expanded recall and may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.
The expanded recall includes all fresh ground beef sold in Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington from the self-service meat cooler and the full-service meat counter with Sell By dates of Aug. 28 to Sept. 23. This includes all items that use fresh ground beef as an ingredient, including but not limited to meatballs, sliders and gourmet burgers.
A detailed list of the recalled items is online.
