United Food Group, a Vernon-based meatpacker, is expanding its June 3 recall of ground beef products that may be contaminated with a potentially deadly E. coli pathogen. This week, the company said as much as 75,000 pounds of ground beef could be tainted. But after reports that as many as 15 people, including three in Southern California, might have become ill, United added 370,000 pounds of chubs, or tubes of fresh ground beef, to the recall.
