Wolverine Packing Company, a Detroit, Mich., establishment, is recalling approximately 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced May 19.

The ground beef products were produced between March 31 and April 18, 2014. These products were shipped to distributors for restaurant and retail use nationwide. There was no distribution of the products to the Department of Defense, the National School Lunch Program, or catalog/internet sales.

Based on epidemiological and traceback investigations, 11 case-patients have been identified in four states with illness onset dates ranging from April 22 to May 2, 2014.

The government agency advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160° Fahrenheit. The only way to confirm that ground beef is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature.

For more information, consumers can call 800- 521-1390.
