If you’re a meat eater, you might want to take a second look at your ground beef package before cooking and consuming it.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday that Green Bay Dressed Beef, LCC, based out of Wisconsin, has recalled more than 58,000 pounds of ground beef due to potential E. coli contamination.
The recall comes after a sample of the meat tested by public health officials found Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) O103, according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service.
No illnesses have been reported yet as a result of the recall, but the agency is advising consumers to throw away any affected ground beef out of an abundance of caution. The beef was sent to distribution centers in Ohio, Georgia and Michigan.
The affected ground meat products were produced on August 14, each having an establishment number of EST. 18076.
