WASHINGTON, DC (WDTN) – Some of the tainted ground beef currently under recall may have been distributed to grocery stores.

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said stores in nine states may have received beef contaminated with E. coli.

The original recall said the meat was distributed only to restaurants. The agency has since named retailers who may have sold the meat, including Gordon Food Service Marketplace stores in Ohio and Indiana.

Consumers are asked to return or throw out meat that has the code EST.2574B and a production date between March 31 and April 18, 2014. According to the USDA, the ground beef is sold under a variety of labels, but comes from Wolverine Packing Co. in Detroit.

Eleven people in four states, including Ohio, have been sickened. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
