Price Chopper Supermarkets and several other grocery stores have voluntarily recalled select packages of USDA ground beef.
Contaminated packages have expiration dates of September 16 through October 5, 2009.
That's according to the USDA and Fairbank Farms - a supplier to several chains in the Northeast that is believed to have distributed beef containing possible E. Coli contamination.
The varieties of ground beef in question include:
80% lean ground beef
80% lean chili meat
93% lean grind
96% lean grind
Meat loaf mix
Neither ground chuck nor any Certified Angus ground beef is a part of this recall.
Consumers are encouraged to check their freezers for these varieties of ground beef bearing the dates listed above.
You can return them to any Price Chopper store for a full refund.
Those seeking more information should call AFA, the supplier that initiated the recall, at 1-877-546-0122.
