Fred Meyer stores in Alaska have pulled certain packages of ground beef from their shelves as a precaution after cases of E Coli in Michigan and Ohio have been linked to a Nebraska meat supplier. Kroger Company is the parent organization of Fred Meyer. The stores buy meat from the same Nebraska supplier. Fred Meyer spokeswoman Melinda Merrill says the stores removed the meat from their shelves last night as the USDA continues investigating how the meat became contaminated.
