Updated Beef recalled in Arizona, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin linked to illnesses in Minnesota

The meat company linked to an E. coli outbreak in the Twin Cities Minnesota is recalling 117,500 pounds of beef shipped to eight states, including Michigan, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.  Health officials have said it appears that tainted ground beef from Lunds or Byerly’s stores sickened seven people, including three who had to be hospitalized before they recovered.  The USDA notice issued late Thursday said PM Beef Holdings LLC of Windom is voluntarily recalling the beef trim products that were sent to distributors and retailers in Arizona, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin.  The USDA said the beef trim was produced March 27 and turned into ground beef sold under numerous retail brand names. In Minnesota, officials have said it was ground at the stores where it was sold.  See FSIS Release
