The recalled beef was processed on 3 different dates, June 17, June 24, as well as July 8, 2008.

The meat was sent out by “Coleman Natural” for shipiping, as 31 cases of E. coli have already been reported across the U.S. and Canada.

The stated impacted include Kentucky, Indiana, New York, Ohio, Utah, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.

Whole Foods Market has issued a recall as of last Friday on any fresh ground beef sold between June 2 and August 6 due to E. coli.
