SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego-based meat wholesaler has recalled some 925 pounds of ground-beef that might be contaminated with E. Coli.
The Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Tuesday that no illnesses have been reported from the products sold by San Diego Meat Co.
The recall applies to 15-pound cases of ground beef patties and 10-pound bags of bulk ground beef produced between Oct. 7 and Oct. 12 and sold to San Diego County-area caterers and restaurants.
San Diego Meat co-owner Bob Watkins says the company is retrieving and destroying the meat.
He says the company's own tests of the same products showed no bacteria.
E. coli is a potentially deadly germ that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure.
