Recalled beef may have been sent to Wisconsin, 9 other states

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - Federal food safety officials say ground beef recalled by a Detroit business may have been sent to stores in 10 states.

According to an announcement Thursday, the U.S. agriculture department's Food Safety and Inspection Service says it has reason to believe recalled beef was sent to retail outlets in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

In Wisconsin, the beef was sold through Gordon's Food Service.

Wolverine Packing Co. announced Monday it was recalling 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli.

FSIS said Friday that 11 people have been sickened. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, symptoms of E. coli poisoning include severe stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhea (sometimes bloody), sometimes a low-grade fever, and in severe cases can lead to kidney failure. People with weakened or immature immune systems are especially susceptible.

Symptoms usually take 3-4 days to appear, but can show in as little as a day or take as many as 10 days, the CDC says.

Consumers can see a list of recalled products and potentially affected stores on the U.S. Department of Agriculture's website.
