Publix issues product recall following E. coli scare

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- A southeastern supermarket chain has issued a recall of multiple meat products.

A Publix representative says numerous items containing ground chuck could be contaminated with E. coli.

These items were sold between July 25th and August 12th from the meat department, including those in Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia.

The voluntary recall was issued as a precaution, after routine inspections revealed traces of the bacteria in the National Beef Packing Company's slaughter house.

Maria Brous, Publix media director, says despite the discovery, no customers have turned up ill.  

"To date, there have been no reported cases of illness," Maria Brous says. "Consumers who have purchased the products in question may return the product to their local store for a full refund."
