Recalled Ground Beef

I am getting tired of writing this post. I feel like I write some version of it every month….

The Hannaford supermarket chain, which has stores in New England and New York, is recalling ground beef with a sell-by date of December 17 or earlier, as it may be contaminated with salmonella. The precise amount of beef being recalled is undetermined.

The ground beef recall was made after receiving reports of fourteen ill people, ten of which reported purchasing ground beef at Hannaford stores in Maine, New York, New Hampshire and Vermont between October 12 and November 20. Seven of the fourteen people were hospitalized.

Among the varieties being recalled are Hannaford’s regular ground beef and its Taste of Inspirations Angus and Nature’s Place brands, with content ranging between 73 percent and 90 percent lean.

The chain has approximately 170 stores in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York, and all the beef affected by the recall has been removed from stores.
