Brackett’s Market in Bath and Shop N’ Save stores in Gray and Dover-Foxcroft have been added to the list of retailers that the U.S. Department of Agriculture believes sold Cargill ground beef that was recalled Sunday due to a salmonella outbreak last month.

Most of the nearly 30,000 pounds of 85 percent lean ground beef that was recalled was sold at Hannaford stores in five states between the end of May and mid-June.

In addition to the stores in Maine, retailers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylanvia – including several IGA stores – were added to the USDA’s list on Tuesday.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control knows of 33 people, including one in Maine, who were sickened with the same strain of salmonella enteritidis that was found in Cargill ground beef produced on May 25 at a Pennsylvania processing facility.
