Batesville Company Recalling More than 4,000 Pounds of Beef

JANUARY 30, 2007 - Posted at 8:00 a.m. CST

 

BATESVILLE, AR - The U.S. Department of Agriculture says a Batesville firm is voluntarily recallling more than 4,000 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with the E-coli bacteria.

The Natural State Meat Company said it is recalling products including one to 25-pound bags labled "Meacham Packing Company hamburger" and one to 10-pound bags labled "Meacham Packing Company, ground beef chuck."

The USDA said yesterday that a routine microbiologic check of the beef found the possible contamination.

The recalled beef was produced between January 19 and January 26 and was distributed to retail stores in Independence County.  The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service said they had received no reports of illnesses associated with the beef.
