A Kansas meat company with nationwide distribution is recalling thousands of pounds of ground beef because it may be contaminated with E. coli.
The Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that Creekstone Farms Premium Beef is recalling about 14,158 pounds of ground beef.
The products were produced on Feb. 22 and were shipped to wholesalers in Arizona, California, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington.
The beef has since been repackaged into consumer-sized packages and sold under different retail brand names.
The FSIS will post the names of those products when they become available.
Federal health officials advise people to only eat meat if it has been cooked to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. The only way to ensure beef is properly cooked is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature.
