Meat Recall

Omaha-based CONAGRA is recalling beef products from 21 states including Nebraska because e-coli was detected in the meat.   The beef has been linked to 19 illnesses in four states including Nebraska.  The Nebraska case was reported near Ogallala in Western Nebraska.  The other cases were reported in Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota. The e-coli bacteria can be fatal in young children, the elderly and people with weak immune systems.  For more information on cooking instructions to prevent e-coli illnesses, you can click on the United State Department of Agriculture website at www.usda.gov
