    Not an update but from the USDA site:
    http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/...e#.UcOlaynD9jo

    The following products are subject to recall:

    • 10 lb. packages of “National Beef” 80/20 Coarse Ground Chuck, package code “0481.”
    • 10 lb. packages of “National Beef” 81/19 Coarse Ground Beef, package code “0421.”
    • 10 lb. packages of “National Beef” 80/20 Fine Ground Chuck, package code “0484.”

    All these products have a “USE BY/SELL BY DATE” of June 14, 2013, and bear the establishment number “EST. 208A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on May 25, 2013, and shipped to various institutions and retail establishments in Texas, Tennessee, Kansas, Mississippi, Illinois, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, and Arizona. FSIS and the establishment are concerned that some product may be frozen and in shoppers’ freezers.
