E. coli has been found in hamburger meat at companies on opposite coasts, leading to a recall of tens of thousands of pounds of ground beef and patties just ahead of the July 4th holiday weekend.

Nearly 40,000 pounds of ground beef from processing distributors in California and New York are involved in the two separate recalls, both involving the same strain of E.coli, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.
