Whole Foods announces another meat recall

Just in time for the weekend, beef and chicken nuggets recalled

Ground beef and chicken nuggets sold at Whole Foods have been recalled.

Two Whole Foods Market stores are recalling 368 pounds of ground beef because they say it may be contaminated with E. coli bacteria. The stores are in South Weymouth and Newton, Massachusetts.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, the beef was sold in June. It could still be in people's freezers.

Between June 13 and June 25, three people got sick and authorities linked their illness back to the beef purchased at those stores. According to the store, no one has tested positive for E. coli.

If customers have the beef in their freezers, they can receive a refund at the stores.

In related news, more than 15,000 pounds of Applegate "Naturals" chicken nuggets were recalled because people found small pieces of plastic in the meat. The nuggets are sold at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.
