Ground beef sold at Walmart, Food City and other stores is being recalled for potential E. coli O157:H7 contamination. Lakeside Refrigerated Services of Swedesboro, N.J issued the recall on June 13 after it was notified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) that a sample of the product had tested positive during routine testing.

The recalled ground beef was produced June 1 and sold under the brand names Marketside Butcher, Thomas Farms and Value Pack. At the time of the recall, the company was not aware of any illnesses, however consumers who have purchased these products should not eat them as E. coli can cause serious illness and death.
