Retailers Kroger, Walmart, Albertsons, and WinCo Foods are recalling more than 28,000 pounds of ground beef over possible E. coli contamination. 

Packages of ground beef, produced by Interstate Meat Dist. Inc. of Clackamas, Oregon on December 20, are being recalled after a sample tested positive for E. coli, according to a statement released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service website on Thursday.

The beef was shipped out to retailers in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming, according to the FSIS.

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers,” the statement says. “Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”

The recalled beef has the establishment number “EST.965” inside the USDA mark of inspection or printed next to the time stamp and use or freeze by date. All recalled product labels can be found on the USDA’s website.

E. coli infection can cause severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Some may experience a mild fever, and most people infected typically get better within five to seven days. Most people start to feel ill within three to four days of consuming contaminated products, according to the CDC.
