      Ground Beef Is Recalled
      By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

      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
      produced on May 31 and distributed to retail, food service and
      institutional establishments nationwide.

      The problem was discovered through microbiological sampling, the
      inspection service said.

      The government said it had received no reports of illness associated
      with the meat.
