The latest E-coli scare has turned up in the Commonwealth.
During a routine federal inspection the tainted beef was discovered at the Great Valu Supermarket in Emporia.
The bacteria was found in fresh ground beef in the southside store during a U-S-D-A random sampling program.
Officials say NO illnesses traced to the tainted meat have been reported.
Records indicate the tainted beef came from a Nebraska packing plant.
But plant officials don't believe its plant is the source of the contimination.
E-coli can cause illness, even death if the meat is not cooked properly.
