Albertsons recalls ground beef in some of its Northwest stores


BOISE (AP) — Albertsons is voluntarily recalling a number of ground beef products sold at its stores in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, due to risk of E. coli contamination.

No illnesses have been reported.

The grocery chain, which is owned by Supervalu Inc., said Monday that the move follows an expanded recall by XL Foods Inc. for ground beef products imported to the U.S. from Canada.

Albertsons is recalling multiple ground beef items sold in all of its stores in Washington and Oregon, as well as three stores in Northern Idaho: Coeur d’Alene, Hayden and Lewiston.

The raw ground beef products were sold at its full service counters or in packaged form with an Albertsons store label between Sept. 3 and Sept. 21.

Customers should return any of the recalled products for a refund or replacement.

The recall includes the following packaged products with the Albertsons store label:

1 lb. fresh ground Beef Patties with the UPC: 7-52907-60030 and “USE BY” date of 9/11/12.

1 lb. fresh ground beef chub with the UPC: 7-52907-18271 and a “USE BY” date of 9/18/12 or 9/21/12.

3 lb. fresh ground beef chub with the UPC: 7-52907-18251 and a “USE BY” date of 9/18/12 or 9/21/12.
