FSIS was reported after the company “identified that previously segregated products had been inadvertently utilized in the production of ground beef”

In the recent series of product recalls, Walmart is now facing a health warning over ground beef products that may have been contaminated with E. coli. On Wednesday, the Department of Agriculture issued a High-Class 1 alert warning for Cargill Meat Solutions products. Approximately 16,243 pounds of raw ground beef shipped to Walmart that may have been infected with the potentially fatal bacteria have been recalled.
