SNOHOMISH, Wash. – Haggen stores are alerting customers to a nationwide ground beef recall.

National Beef Packing Company of Kansas announced the recall of over 50,000 lbs of ground beef after a sample was found to be contaminated with E. Coli.

Several Haggen and top food and drug stores in western Washington sold the possibly-tainted beef under the 97-percent lean “Nature Source” label.

The meat can be returned to the store for a full refund.

For more information call National Beef at 1-800-449-beef.
