    Washington (CNN) -- A beef recall is under way in a half-dozen states involving possibly contaminated products from the Oklahoma company National Steak and Poultry, according to the firm and federal inspectors.

    U.S. Agriculture Department officials said a cluster of illnesses involving the E. coli bacteria was reported in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, South Dakota and Washington state.

    Thanks for posting Liz. Fortunately, I'm not in any of the states effected but I hope that anyone who is takes the proper precautions. Ecoli can be very scary.

    Thanks for the heads up. Another reason to buy locally raised grass-fed beef!! I wouldn't touch beef from a factory (especially ground) with a 10-foot pole...!

    Thanks Liz for the heads up. I hadn't heard about this. Fortunately I'm not in an affected state. When we travel we do the fast food thing so I like to be aware of this kind of thing!
