New York-Based Fairbank Farms has recalled more than a half million pounds of ground beef due to possible E.-coli bacterial contamination. The meat was distributed in approximately a dozen states including Maryland and Virginia.

As we have discussed here previously, measures to eliminate E.-coli from the ground beef process, have been hindered by inadequate inspection and an insufficiently rigorous rules. See: http://www.maryland-law.com/blog/food-safety-time-for-reform.cfm

The contaminated meat packaging features the number "Est 492". A New Hampshire resident has reportedly died  and other illnesses have been reported.
