    Commissary burgers recalled over E. coli worry By Karen Jowers Commissary
    officials are warning customers that two types of frozen ground beef
    hamburgers sold at military grocery stores are among those that have been
    recalled because of possible E. coli contamination. Food safety officials
    at the Defense Commissary Agency said the commissary carries two products
    made by the Topps Meat Company, LLC., which is voluntarily recalling nearly
    332,000 pounds of frozen ground beef, in 21 different products, in
    cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The two commissary
    products are:

    * "Topps 100% Pure Ground Beef Hamburgers," 12 quarter pounders, 3-pound
    boxes (UPC: 074701-00025). Each box bears a sell-by date of "JUN 22 08,"
    "JUL 12 08" or "JUL 23 08."

    * "Topps 100% Pure Ground Beef Hamburgers," 20 quarter pounders, 5-pound
    boxes (UPC: 074701-00110). Each box bears a sell-by date of "JUN 22 08,"
    "JUL 12 08" or "JUL 23 08."

    E. coli 0157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody
    diarrhea and dehydration. Young children, seniors and those with compromised
    immune systems are the most susceptible to food borne illness. Commissary
    officials warn customers who have these products at home to stop using them
    and return the unused product with the label to the store where they
    purchased it for a full refund. The products subject to recall bear the
    establishment number "Est. 9748" inside the USDA mark of inspection. A
    complete list of the recalled products sold at civilian stores is available
    at the Department of Agriculture's Web site.
