    WASHINGTON -- United Food Group, LLC, Vernon, Calif., expanded its June 3 recall of ground beef products because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, as the number of reported cases of infection with E. coli bacteria climbed to 13.

    The ground beef products in the expanded recall were produced on April 13, while the products subject to the original recall were produced on April 20. Potentially contaminated products were shipped to retail distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

    According to a CNN report, the meat was sold under the brand names of Moran's All Natural, Miller Meat Company, Stater Bros., Inter-American Products Inc., and Bashas', with sell-by dates from April 20 to May 7.

    A link between illnesses in several states and the ground beef subject to recall was determined through an investigation carried out by the California Department of Health Services and the Colorado Department of Health, in coordination with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The expanded recall now totals approximately 370,000 pounds.

    According to the USDA, E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. The very young, seniors, and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to the foodborne illness.

    The labels of the products subject to recall bear the establishment number "EST. 1241" inside the USDA mark of inspection or printed on the package. All of the products bear a sell-by date of April 29, 2007, April 30, 2007, or May 6, 2007, a freeze-by date of April 28, 2007, April 29, 2007, or April 30, 2007, or a produced on date of April 13, 2007 or April 20, 2007.
