Tyson Recalling 40,000 Pounds of Beef Sold in Texas Wal-Mart Stores

Tyson Fresh Meats is recalling more than 40,000 pounds of ground beef.

Samples tested at a Sherman, Texas, plant showed signs of E. coli contamination in meat shipped to Wal-Mart stores in 12 states. No illnesses had been reported.

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.

Tyson has recalled 40,440 pounds of ground beef, all of which had sell-by dates of June 13th. The ground beef was sold in prepackaged trays that were placed directly into the meat case.

The recalled products include:

  • 1 1/2 lb. trays of Angus steak burger all natural, 85/15, 6¼-pound patties
  • 1 1/3 lb. trays of Angus steak burger all natural, 85/15, extra thick, 4 1/3-pound patties
  • 2 1/4 lb. trays of 73/27 all-natural ground beef
