Tyson Fresh Meats Inc. is recalling about 131,300 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli, federal officials said. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said that the department became aware of the problem Monday when the agency was notified by the Ohio Department of Health of E. coli illnesses in Butler County, with onset dates from September 8 through September 11. Leftover ground beef collected from a home on September 19 tested positive for E. coli Tuesday, the agriculture department said.
