The United States Department of Agriculture USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is expanding the Public Health Alert for XL Foods (Canadian Establishment 038) to include all beef and beef products produced on Aug. 24, 27, 28, 29 and Sept. 5.

FSIS was notified that XL Foods has expanded its recall to include all beef and beef products produced on the above dates.

Included on that list is Walmart in Norwalk and Kroger's in Sandusky. Also on the list are Walmart in Ashland, Elyria and Oberlin.

A spokesperson at the Norwalk Walmart said all questions had to be answered by the home office.

Katie Spaar, director of community health at the Huron County General Health District, said commissioner Tim Hollinger spoke to the local Walmart and the manager said the Norwalk store does not have any of the recalled beef.

Because FSIS has been informed that all beef and beef products produced on the above dates are being recalled.

FSIS has reason to believe that the following retail location(s) received raw boneless beef trim products imported from Canada that were the subject of an FSIS Public Health Alert.

This list may not include all retail locations that have received the product or may include retail locations that did not actually receive the product. Therefore, it is important that you use the product-specific identification information, available at

http://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_..., in addition to this list of retail stores, to check meat or poultry products in your possession to see if they are covered by the alert.

Additional information for consumers and an updated retail distribution list are posted on FSIS' website at www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/O....
