On Thursday, Kroger expanded its recall of ground beef, part of a recall by Nebraska Beef. (Reporting by Sarah Coffey, editing by Maureen Bavdek)

We have some Kroger ground beef. I wonder how you tell if what you have was recalled?

If it is fresh, you can be almost certain it is not. If you froze it, look at the code dates to see if they match up.

But really, all you need to do is cook it to 160f internal and there will be no problem.

Eating anything less than well done ground meat is looking for trouble.
