SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) - Tyson Fresh Meats is recalling more than 40,000 pounds of ground beef with signs of E. coli contamination.
It had been shipped to Wal-Mart stores in 12 states.
No illnesses have been reported. Arkansas-based Tyson Foods says the recall is not related to contaminated ground beef distributed by California-based United Food Group.
Tyson says the recalled products were sent to Wal-Mart stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.
Wal-Mart has removed the products from its meat cases and is destroying the recalled ground beef still in its possession.
