Company Recalls 129,000 Pounds Of Beef

Kalamazoo, Mich. (AP) -- A meat company is recalling nearly 130,000 pounds of beef products in 15 states because of possible E. coli contamination.

The US Department of Agriculture says the meat products were made in March and April by Davis Creek Meats and Seafood, based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and were being sold by Gordon Food Service Stores.

The products were shipped to distribution centers and retailers in Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

The items being recalled include boxes of mechanically tenderized steaks and ground beef. The boxes are labeled "Est. 1947A."

E. coli symptoms include stomach cramps that may be severe and diarrhea that may turn bloody within one to three days. E. coli can cause complications including kidney failure.
