NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is recalling nearly 23,000 pounds of ground beef after potential E. coli contamination.

The beef comes from National Beef Packing Company out of Kansas and was shipped to Tennessee, Mississippi, Illinois, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas and Arizona.

The following products are being recalled:

  • 10 lb. packages of "National Beef" 80/20 Coarse Ground Chuck, package code "0481."
  • 10 lb. packages of "National Beef" 81/19 Coarse Ground Beef, package code "0421."
  • 10 lb. packages of "National Beef" 80/20 Fine Ground Chuck, package code "0484."

 All the products being recalled have a sell by date of June 14, 2013, and have the number "EST. 208A" inside the mark of inspection by the USDA.

The meat was produced on May 25, and officials are concerned that some product may still be in consumer's freezers.

E. coli O157 is often spread through animal or human fecal contamination on food products. There have been no reports of illnesses associated with this recall.
