Since USDA has not yet gotten its act together and delivered on its promise to begin listing retail stores that were supplied recalled meat and poultry, we'll do our best to fill in the knowledge gap.
California consumers can obtain a complete list of retail markets, restaurants and hotels that received the recalled meat by navigating to the California Department of Public Health site for the most recent update.
Here is a consolidated list of all US retail recipients outside California that we've learned about so far.
Whole Foods Markets: all stores in Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington DC, Wisconsin.
Fred Meyer (a Kroger company): all stores in Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Alaska.
