GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - JBS Swift Beef Co. of Greeley, Colo., is voluntarily expanding its beef recall to include about 380,000 pounds of products because of possible E. coli contamination.

A recall earlier this week involved about 41,000 pounds of products.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Sunday that all the beef products were produced April 21 and are in boxes bearing "EST 969," a package date of "042109" and a time stamp ranging from "0618" to "1130."

The USDA says an investigation by its Food Safety and Inspection
Service of 24 illnesses in multiple states prompted the company to re-examine its food safety system. The department says 18 of the illnesses appear to have the same cause, and the company is conducting the recall "out of an abundance of caution."
