Massive beef recall includes Indiana stores

Updated:
WASHINGTON -

A massive recall of tainted ground beef is expanding and now includes Indiana.

The USDA says at least six retailers across ten states may have sold beef contaminated with e.Coli.

The list of retailers includes major grocery chain Gordon Food Service or GFS.

Investigators traced the bad meat back to Wolverine Packing Company in Detroit. The company sent the ground beef to stores in Indiana.

So far, 11 people have been sickened in the outbreak. No one has died.

Only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160 degrees.

Because the beef was widely distributed to several GFS stores in Indiana, it's important that consumers look up the specific product code to determine if the beef they bought is under the recall. You can do that here.
