Officials: Up to 9 Sick From Calif. Beef Recall

— Health officials in California and Colorado say at least nine people have reported illnesses tied to a recall of ground beef that may be tainted with salmonella.

On Thursday, Fresno-based Beef Packers Inc. recalled 825,769 pounds of ground beef produced June 5-23.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says the beef was distributed to retail distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado and Utah.

A spokesman for the California Department of Public Health said Friday two people have reported feeling ill in Tulare County and three in Orange County.

Colorado health officials say at least four people there were hospitalized for related illnesses, but all are recovering.
