OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — More than a dozen Nebraska and Council Bluffs grocery stores have eliminated tainted beef from suppliers that used products from an Omaha meat-processing facility.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hasn't listed any E. coli outbreaks in Nebraska or Iowa this week. The newspaper says local health departments weren't available for comment Wednesday.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a nationwide recall last week for more than 167,000 pounds of All American Meats Inc. ground beef products for possible E. coli contamination. The bacteria can cause death or illness.
More than 100 retailers in about 20 states were on a USDA-issued list of locations that might have tainted meat on their shelves.
