KSLA ALERT CENTER: Meat Recall Has States on High Alert

A regional recall of hamburger meat has other states on high alert

Five states are now included in this recall--including California,Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

Richwood Meat says it distributed hamburger patties with e coli in them--and it's blaming the slaughterhouse that provided the meat.

At least three kids have become sick from e coli.

Now other states are checking their meat products to make sure this recall doesn't need to be expanded.
