Cargill Meat Solutions is recalling 29,339 pounds of fresh ground beef amid a seven-state salmonella outbreak that's sickened 33 people.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Sunday that the Wyalusing, Pa.-based company would recall packages of 85-percent lean ground beef that was produced on May 25, 2012, that were sold wholesale and for processing to retailers.

The FSIS warned that the beef was repackaged for sale in consumer-sized packages and sold under different retail brand names at stores in the Northeast U.S. at the end of May and in early June. The products are no longer sold in stores given that the used-by-date has passed, but may potentially be in consumers' homes.

The retail distribution list of where the beef was sold can be found here; so far it only includes stores from the Hannaford Supermakets chain located in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont.

Hannaford Supermarkets, a New England-based chain of grocery stores, told the Associated Press it alerted its customers to check purchased ground beef for "use or sell by" dates between May 29 and June 16.
