Thousands of raw beef products have been recalled due to a possible E. coli contamination.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Aurora Packing Company is recalling more than 62,000 pounds of select products, including short ribs, ribeyes and briskets.

They were packaged on April 19 and have an establishment number “EST. 788” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items were shipped nationwide.

The USDA says there have been no confirmed reports of “adverse reactions”.

Symptoms of E. coli infections include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service say it is concerned that some of the products may be in institutional facility freezers.

Any person or business who has purchased these products is urged not to use them. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
