Cargill Meat Solutions, based in Fort Morgan, CO, is recalling over 132,000 pounds of ground beef products distributed nationwide that may be contaminated with E. coli.

The ground beef items were produced and packaged on June 21, 2018.

Investigations have identified 17 illnesses and one death that appears to be traced back to the raw ground beef.

Illnesses were reported between July 5 – 25.

Authorities are concerned that some of the ground beef may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. The products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
