WASHINGTON (AP) - Amarillo-based Palo Duro Meat is recalling 40,000 pounds of frozen fine ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the product was produced Sept. 9 and shipped to two warehouses in Georgia for distribution to institutions that include six Georgia school districts associated with the National School Lunch Program. The government said the bulk of the product has not left the warehouses, and officials were not aware of any being served as school lunches.
No illnesses have been reported.
The company discovered the problem after reviewing lab results.
The products subject to recall include 40-pound boxes containing four 10-pound chubs of fine ground beef. Each case bears "Est. 7282" inside the USDA mark of inspection and a production code of 19110.
