Denver and Grand Junction, CO (SafetyAlerts) -- King Sooper has announced a recall of almost 24,000 pounds of ground beef.  All King Sooper and City Market brand Ground Beef in 16 oz. chubs (73%, 80% and 88%) and 5lbs. chubs (73%); and King Sooper and City Market brand Ground Chuck (73%, 80%, 91%, 95%) and Chili Meat in packages weighing approximately 16 oz. The ground beef is being recalled due to possible E. coli contamination.

This is a Class I recall

King Soopers stated the product was sold through King Soopers and City Market stores which have locations in Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico and throughout Colorado.

This recall was announced after the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) notified King Soopers and City Market of the presence of Escherichia coli 0157:H7 (E. coli) bacteria in a sample taken from the King Soopers store.

Neither King Sooper nor City Market has received any complaints of illness related to the product.  The companies are asking consumers who purchased the King Soopers label ground beef carrying the October 5 sell-by date, to return the product for a full refund or replacement.
