Recalled Beef May Have Been Sent To 10 States Including Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

Federal food safety officials say ground beef recalled by a Detroit business may have been sent to stores in 10 states.

According to an announcement Thursday, the U.S. agriculture department's Food Safety and Inspection Service says it has reason to believe recalled beef was sent to retail outlets in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

The USDA says GFS Marketplace locations in Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee may have received the recalled beef. 

Wolverine Packing Co. announced Monday it was recalling 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli.

FSIS had said 11 people were sickened. Messages seeking an updated figure were left Friday.
