SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - A Chicago food company has recalled approximately 200 pounds of ground beef patties that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA) announced today.

The ground beef patties were produced by Columbus Meat Market Inc., 906 W. Randolph, Dec. 27, 2010, and shipped to food-handling establishments in the Chicagoland area. Each package label on the suspect patties bears the establishment number "EST. 755" and an identifying pack date of "12/27/10." The contamination was discovered through IDOA microbiological sampling, which confirmed a positive result for E. coli O157:H7.
