March 11, 2011 -- Potentially deadly contamination with E. coli bacteria has led to the recall of 14,158 pounds of ground beef in 10 states.

The ground beef came from Creekstone Farms Premium Beef, located in Arkansas City, Kansas. It was distributed in large 40- and 60-lb. cases to wholesalers in Arizona, California, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

However, the beef likely was repackaged into consumer-size packages and sold under various retail brand names.
