Washington, DC (WIBX) - A nationwide recall of beef is in effect for 29,339 pounds of 85/15 beef from Cargill Meat Solutions based in Wyalusing, Pennsylvania.

14-Pound "chub" packages with the establishment number of 9400 marked on the USDA inspection label were distributed in many states, including New York.

The meat is believed to be tainted with salmonella, which could cause sickness and death. Consumers are urged to check their freezers, as the beef was produced on May 25th and cases are only now becoming known.

The beef is said to have been sold locally at Hannaford supermarkets.
