RECALL: tainted beef recall expands to 36 states

The USDA now believes recalled beef is more widespread than first suspected.

The federal agency believes the tainted beef came from a California-based meat producer and may have reached 36 states, including Missouri and Kansas.

Thousands of additional retailers, including large grocery chains, received the beef products from Rancho Feeding Corporation. 

The company recalled nearly 9 million pounds of meat just a few weeks ago. The beef may have come from diseased cattle.

Kansas' listing begins on page 106 of the document, while Missouri retailers begin on page 127.
