The U.S. Food and Inspection Service announced a recall of approximately 102 pounds of hamburger patties and bulk ground beef due to possible contamination.

Being recalled were 4-pound packages of patties and various weight packages of ground beef, each bearing the establishment number "Est. 9085" with a "packed on" date of "DEC.11.07" or "DEC.12.07."
