A meat processor has recalled approximately 16,234 pounds of raw ground beef products processed in its Pennsylvania facility that may be contaminated with E. coli.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Wednesday with Cargill Meat Solutions to alert consumers of six different types of ground beef products that should be thrown out.

According to the agency, the ground beef may have been contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, a “bacterial strain that is an important food and a waterborne pathogen that causes diarrhea, hemorrhagic colitis, and hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) in humans,” according to StatPearls, an online library published in the National Library of Medicine.
