Contract manufacturer Cargill Meat Solutions is recalling approximately 16,243 pounds (8.12 tons) of raw ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The meat was produced at Cargill’s plant in Hazleton, Pa., and shipped to Walmart locations nationwide.

Cargill reported the issue to FSIS after they identified previously segregated meat had been inadvertently utilized in the production of ground beef. So far, there have been no confirmed reports of illness due to consumers eating these products.

The raw ground beef items were produced on April 26 and 27, 2024. These six products are subject to recall, and all bear the USDA mark of inspection on the front of the product label, and establishment number "EST. 86P" on the back label.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2-8 days (3-4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators or freezers. Shoppers who have purchased these products should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160 F. The only way to confirm that ground beef is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Cargill Meat Solutions at 1-844-419-1574.
