The Valley Meat Company and the USDA have declared a recall of one million pounds of ground beef produced by the California-based meat processor. The two announced the recall after several reported cases of E. coli bacteria found in the beef.
The recalled meat products are mostly frozen ground beef patties made between October 2009 and January 2010. Because the products are frozen it is very likely that some grocery stores and consumers could still have the product in their freezers.
So far, there have been seven cases of E. coli poisoning from the Valley Meat Company product. The USDA will investigate what caused the bacteria.
