GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Another beef recall. The U.S. Agriculture Department says American Foods Group is voluntarily recalling nearly 96,000 pounds of ground beef products after two people were sickened, possibly with E. coli.

The products include coarse and fine ground beef chuck, sirloin and chop beef steak that were produced on October 10th. The meat was distributed to retailers and distributors seven states in the East and Midwest: Wisconsin, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Maryland and Virginia.

Consumers are urged to look in their freezers and return or throw out any of the products they may have bought.

The problem came to light after the Illinois Department of Health looked into two reports of people getting sick.
