Frozen beef sold in Illinois recalled for E. coli risk

WASHINGTON (WLS) -- The US Department of Agriculture has issued a recall for several frozen beef products produced in Canada and sold in Illinois, and other states, due to a risk of E. coli contamination.

Officials said beef manufacturing trimmings from May 27 and May 30, 2019, imported from Canada and which are subject to a recall were used to produce other raw, non-intact beef products distributed for sale. The companies that produced the products have been alerted, officials said.

The following products are part of the recall and were distributed in Illinois, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont:
