Some 864,000 pounds of US ground beef recalled

WASHINGTON, Jan 18 (Reuters) - Some 864,000 pounds (390 tonnes) of ground beef produced by a California meat packer is being recalled for fear of potentially deadly E.coli bacterium tainting, U.S. officials said on Monday.

The beef was produced by Huntington Meat Packing Inc of Montebello, California, and shipped mainly to California outlets, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s food safety arm said.

The problem was discovered during an inspection by the Food Safety and Inspection Service, which said it had received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of the recalled products. (Reporting by Jim Wolf, Editing by Sandra Maler)
