Here we go again…more shady food handling practices causes disease ridden products.

Tyson Fresh Meats Inc. is recalling about 131,300 pounds of ground beef because a family in Ohio fell ill after eating meat that was contaminated with E. coli.

The recall involves Kroger, Butcher’s and generic beef products that the South Dakota-based company produced at its plant in Emporia, Kan., on Aug. 23, the USDA said in a news release.

Tyson sold the beef to Kroger and Butcher.

Four family members in Butler County, Ohio, became ill in the second week of September, according to The New York Daily News. One person was hospitalized for a week with severe diarrhea. Ground beef from the family’s home tested positive for the bacteria. No other cases have been reported in their area.

The products being recalled include 5-pound packages of Kroger-brand ground beef packed in 40-pound cases, with a product code of D-0211 QW, which was distributed in Tennessee and Indiana; 3-pound packages of Butcher’s Brand beef packed in 36-pound cases with the code D-0211 LWIF, which was distributed in North and South Carolina; and 3-pound packages of generic labeled beef packed in 36-pound cases with a product code D-0211 LWI, which was sold in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
