The U.S. Agriculture Department said S&S Foods is recalling about 153,630 lbs of frozen ground beef products because they may be contaminated with E. coli.
USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the Azusa, California-based company was recalling the beef products that were shipped to distribution centers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Allentown, Pennsylvania. The recall was announced late on Wednesday.
The government said 11 illnesses have been reported with consumption of this product.
The label of the products subject to recall bear the establishment number "EST. 20375" inside the USDA mark of inspection and a case code beginning "06238" ink-jet printed on the side of the box
E. coli can cause diarrhea and dehydration. Children, the elderly and people with weak immune systems are the most susceptible.
