More than 295,000 pounds of raw beef products are being recalled because they may be contaminated with E. coli.

Greater Omaha Packing, an Omaha, Nebraska meat processor, is recalling select products produced on July 13, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced late Thursday.

The products may be contaminated with the strain of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and have an establishment number “EST. 960A” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

According to the recall notice, these items were distributed to further processors in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Nebraska. A list of where the products were sold was not included in the recall.

Greater Omaha did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment.
