MONTEBELLO, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California meat-packing firm has expanded its recall of ground beef and veal that might be contaminated with E. coli.

The Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Friday the recall now includes approximately 4.9 million additional pounds of meat products by Montebello-based Huntington Meat Packing Inc. under the Huntington, Imperial Meat Co. and El Rancho brands.

The original recall, announced Jan. 18, was for 864,000 pounds of meat.

E. coli is a potentially deadly germ that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure.
