IBP, Dakota City, Neb., a meatpacking company, is recalling more than a half-million pounds of beef in 33 states due to possible E. coli bacteria contamination. The recall is for coarsely ground beef sold in vacuum-packed tubes. Ingesting the bacteria can cause serious illness and even death. Meanwhile, Winn-Dixie grocery stores in 13 states expanded an earlier, un-related recall on hot dogs to include lunch meat products. The recall is due to possible Listeria contamination.
