E-Coli Concerns: Restaurant Meat Recalled in 4 Southeast States

FOREST PARK, Ga. (AP) -- A meat company in Forest Park is recalling 1,900 pounds of ground beef sent to restaurants in Georgia, North Carolina, and two other states, saying it may be contaminated with E. coli.

Arko Veal Company officials say the company distributed only a small amount in Georgia, sending it to two restaurants in DeKalb County, one in Cherokee County and one in Carroll County. He declined to name the restaurants.

The company also distributed the 50-pound cases of beef patties mix in Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina. The company says there was no retail distribution of the products.

The federal Food Safety and Inspection Service has received no reports of illness caused by the products.

The patties were produced from Oct. 7 to Oct. 9.
