WASHINGTON, June 30 (AP) - ConAgra Beef of Greeley, Colo., is
voluntarily recalling 354,200 pounds of fresh and frozen ground beef
products that may be contaminated with E. coli bacteria, the
Agriculture Department announced today.
The department said the labels on all the products being recalled
bear the code EST.969 inside the inspection seal. The products were

with the meat.
