The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service on Wednesday named retailers in nine states that may have received tainted beef.

Two days earlier, the FSIS announced that 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products were being recalled on fears that they could be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

The federal agency named five stores in nine states. They are as follows:

- Gordon Food Service Marketplace stores in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin;
- Surf N Turf Market in Sebring, Florida;
- Giorgio's Italian Delicatessen in Stuart, Florida;
- M Sixty Six General Store in Orleans, Michigan;
- Buchtel Food Mart in Buchtel, Ohio.

Recalled cases of beef from Wolverine Packing Company in Detroit were produced between March 31, 2014, and April 18, 2014.

Based on investigations, 11 people across four states are suspected to have been sickened by the product.

    I'm pretty sure only tree huggers and commies have taints. No God-fearing, gun-toting Patriot would be caught dead with one.

    The taint is between the rec center and the toxic waste dump.

      Riiiiiiight. That's the only place one would find a taint. Misogynist.
