After additional testing and additional reported illnesses, UFG expanded the recall on June 6 to include 370,000 pounds of ground beef produced between April 13 and April 20 that was distributed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, new Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. On June 9, 2007, UFG expanded two previous ground beef recalls to include over 5.7 million pounds of meat products that were potentially contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. The recall expansion came after the California Department of Health Services, the Colorado Department of Health, and the CDC reported 14 illnesses associated with consumption of UFG ground beef – 6 in Arizona, 3 in California, 2 in Colorado, 1 in Idaho, 1 in Utah, and 1 in Wyoming.
