DODGE CITY, Kan. — Winn-Dixie Stores Inc., Publix Super Markets Inc. and Kroger Co. have announced recalls of some ground beef packages over fears of E. coli contamination, The Associated Press reported.

The problems stem from the National Beef Packaging Co. of Dodge City, Kan., where 60,000 pounds of beef was recalled after the Ohio Department of Agriculture found the bacteria during testing.

The recalls affect products sold mainly in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Carolina and Tennessee, but the meat was sent to several distributors and could have been repackaged for consumers and sold nationwide, the article stated.
