    WASHINGTON - The ConAgra Beef Co. is voluntarily recalling 354,200 pounds (160,700 kg) of ground beef products because they may be contaminated with potentially deadly E.coli bacteria, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Sunday.

    The labels on the recalled fresh and frozen ground beef products carry the establishment code "EST. 969" inside the USDA seal of inspection and should be returned to the places where they were purchased, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said.

    The recalled beef was produced on May 31 and distributed to retail, food service and institutional establishments nationwide, it said.

    The agency said it had not received any reports of illnesses linked to the recalled beef and that the potential contamination was discovered through its own sampling procedure.

    The USDA said consumers with questions about the recall should contact ConAgra Beef Co. representative Jim Herlihy at 970-506-8052.
