A Maine meat distributor has announced that it is recalling more than a ton of beef products that may be contaminated with the E. coli bacteria.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Wednesday that the 2,057 pounds of recalled meat distributed by Town and Country Foods of Greene were shipped from April 4 to April 10.

The products recalled include hamburger patties, stewing beef and sirloin fillets with the establishment number "EST. 9710" inside the USDA mark of inspection and packaging codes 10952, 10962, 10972, 11002 and 11012.

The problem was discovered after company lab testing confirmed a positive result for E. coli

No illnesses have been reported from the recalled beef.

E. coli can cause illness and even death.
