Cargill Beef, a business unit of Wichita-based Cargill Meat Solutions Corporation, today announced an immediate Class I voluntary recall of approximately 29,339 pounds of 85-percent-lean, fresh, ground beef produced at the company’s Wyalusing, Penn., facility on May 25, 2012, due to possible contamination from Salmonella Enteritidis. Cargill is initiating this recall as a result of its own investigation and information provided by federal health and regulatory agencies.

The ground beef involved was repackaged for sale to consumers by Cargill’s customers.

USDA has confirmed that the strain of Salmonella Enteritidis associated with the ground beef recall is not antibiotic resistant.
