Nebraska Beef sues firm over recalled beef

Share This:

OMAHA – Nebraska Beef Ltd. is suing Meyer Natural Foods LLC, Loveland, Colo., to settle a dispute over the liability for beef that was recalled last summer and the cost of the cattle involved, according to The Associated Press. Nebraska Beef recalled nearly 7 million pounds of beef in two separate recalls last summer after its products were linked to at least 76 cases of E. coli illnesses.

Some of the recalled meat came from cattle that Meyer Natural Foods LLC bought and sent to Nebraska Beef's plant for processing. Bill Lamson, Nebraska Beef attorney, said the case is primarily a dispute on expenses between the companies.
