Wal-Mart ground beef recalled for E. coli contamination, includes other stores

Lakeside Refrigerated Services, based in New Jersey, is recalling exactly 42,922 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli.

The recall includes “Organic Grass-Fed Ground Beef, which is sold at Wal-Mart.

The beef was sold under various brand names, including Thomas Farms and Marketside Butcher, could be contaminated with a strain of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and have an establishment number “EST. 46841”

The mark can be found inside the USDA mark of inspection. The beef is sold nationwide and sold at Wal-Mart.
