SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) - Hannaford Supermarkets is alerting consumers that Cargill Beef is voluntarily recalling 29,339 pounds of ground beef that may contain salmonella.
 
The 85-percent-lean ground beef was produced at Cargill's plant in Wyalusing, Pa., on May 25, and repackaged for sale to consumers by customers of the Maine-based grocery chain.
 
Cargill President John Keating says in a statement, ''Food borne illnesses are unfortunate and we are sorry for anyone who became sick from eating ground beef we may have produced.''
 
Hannaford's says consumers should check their ground beef for ''use or sell by'' dates between May 29 and June 16. Refunds will be offered for ground beef that is returned.
 
Additional information is available at the U.S. Department of Agriculture recall website at: www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/index.asp .
 
Cargill is based in Minnetonka, Minn.
