Another recall pulls meat off supermarket shelves

Retail giant Sam?s Club is pulling more hamburger patties out of its freezers after a new E. coli scare.

Four children in Minnesota reportedly fell ill with E. coli after eating meat from Sam?s Club.

The recall comes a day after Topps Meat Company, based in Elizabeth, closed its doors because of a massive meat recall.

Health officials are looking at meat sold and packaged exclusively for Sam's Club under the name American Chef's Selection Angus Beef. The meat was bought after August 26, and has an expiration date of February 12, 2008.

Sam's Club says in a written statement that it has removed the products from its stores around the country.

Health officials are investigating E. coli cases in New Jersey and throughout the country to determine if they are tied to the latest recall.
