Illnesses prompt beef recall

COAL VALLEY, Ill. (AP) - Three people became ill from E. coli in the Cleveland area, prompting an Illinois meatpacker to recall nearly 96,000 pounds of ground beef.

Related illnesses have been reported in Pennsylvania and Illinois. The Ohioans who were sickened have recovered.
