Ground beef recalled in Tennessee

December 18, 2007

The U.S. Food and Inspection Service announced a recall of approximately 102 pounds of hamburger patties and bulk ground beef due to possible contamination.

The FSIS said Snapps Ferry Packing of Afton, Tenn., voluntarily recalled the ground beef when it was determined it might be contaminated with E. coli O157.

Being recalled were 4-pound packages of patties and various weight packages of ground beef, each bearing the establishment number "Est. 9085" with a "packed on" date of "DEC.11.07" or "DEC.12.07."

The products were sold at Snapps' retail store in Afton, Tenn., on Dec. 11 and 12.

Consumers can contact the company at 423-329-9989.
