Fear of E. coli prompts another ground beef recall

More ground beef was recalled Friday because of possible contamination with E. coli bacteria, this time nearly 444,000 pounds produced by a Nebraska meatpacker and distributed nationwide.

No illnesses have been reported because of the tainted beef, which was discovered in a random sample taken Sept. 4 by an Agriculture Department inspector at a grocery store in Emporia, Va.
