Nearly 43,000 pounds of ground beef, including packages sold at Walmart stores, are being recalled because of possible E. coli contamination.
The Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced late Saturday that Lakeside Refrigerated Services of Swedesboro, New Jersey, is recalling select packages of ground beef produced June 1.

These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide, the notice says. Marketside Butcher products are sold at Walmart.
