Numerous beef products have been recalled over fears that they may have been contaminated with E.coli, the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced.

Six ground beef products produced by Cargill Meat Solutions of Pennsylvania are being recalled by the FSIS after a previously “segregated product” was

inadvertently used in the production of ground mince and burger patties. In all, 16,243 pounds of raw beef is believed to be affected.

Cargill Meat Solutions said the products have been shipped to Walmart stores in 12 states: Connecticut, Washington DC, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and New York. All products have an establishment number of “EST. 86P” printed on the back of the label.

The FSIS has said consumers should check their refrigerators or freezers, and any affected purchases should not be consumed and either be thrown away or returned to the store. For any customers with queries regarding the recall, Cargill has set up a consumer hotline at 1-844-419-1574.
