KUSA — After the nation’s largest beef processor recalled nearly 100,000 pounds of ground beef due to possible E. Coli contamination, some 9NEWS viewers shared on Facebook they buy directly from local ranchers.
This particular recall comes a few months after 66 tons of ground beef from a Colorado plant were recalled after E. Coli infection led to one death and 17 reports of illness.
