    MODESTO, Calif. – A meat processor recalled about 1 million pounds of ground beef products Friday after seven people were sickened by E. coli contamination.

    Valley Meat Co., of Modesto, sold the potentially contaminated beef patties and ground beef in California, Texas, Oregon, Arizona and internationally, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.

    The beef was processed from Oct. 2, 2009, to Jan. 12, 2010. Most of the products were sold frozen and the company was working to remove them from grocery store shelves.

    The Valley Meat Company says the ground beef patties and bulk products were produced between October 2nd, 2009 through January 12th, 2010 and were distributed to retail outlets and institutional foodservice providers in California, Texas, Oregon, Arizona and overseas. A list of retailers has not yet been released, but a complete list of products has been published on the company's website.
