And yet another beef recall

Do you shop at a Kroger Company? In the northwest those stores are Fred Meyer and QFC.

If you do - beware of a beef recall:
Customers of Fred Meyer and QFC stores in the Pacific Northwest are advised to throw out any ground beef they purchased from the stores in the past few weeks.

Wednesday, Cincinnati-based Kroger, the parent company of Fred Meyer and QFC, announced a recall of ground beef sold in its stores after reports of an E. coli outbreak in the Midwest.

The affected ground beef includes products in plastic foam tray packages wrapped in cellophane, or purchased from a service counter at all Fred Meyer's and QFC stores between May 21 and July 5.

Kroger also is recalling 16-ounce packages of ground beef under the "Private Selection Natural" label with "sell-by" dates from July 11 through July 21.
