Haggen, Inc. issued a recall of ground beef on Thursday, following a national recall of more than 50,000 pounds of ground beef.

The National Beef Packing Company issued the voluntary recall Wednesday after a sample of its meat tested positive for the bacteria.

Haggen's recall applies to the 97% lean ground beef sold under the NatureSource label and produced July 18, 2013 with a use/freeze by date of August 7, 2013. The product was sold in Haggen stores in Snohomish and Oregon City, as well as TOP Food & Drug stores in Olympia, Woodinville and Grays Harbor, Wash.

Haggen removed the ground beef from its stores and is asking customers to check their refrigerators and freezers for the recalled product. It can be returned to local Haggen or TOP Food & Drug stores for a full refund, even if it is opened.

The recalled beef products all have the establishment number "208-A" inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture mark of inspection.

If you've purchased this meat, visit NationalBeef.com for more information. Customers with questions can contact Haggen at 1-360-733-8720 or National Beef's consumer relations toll free line at 1-800-449-BEEF.

 

In addition to the ground beef recall, a Mississippi company recently recalled more than 2,000 pounds of frozen chicken meals. They contain an ingredient not mentioned on the label -- milk.

The USDA says the meals went to food service institutions across the country. It's a three-compartment tray with lemon pepper chicken, vegetables and fettuccine.

It has the establishment number "P-13850" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
