On Monday, the Ohio Department of Health notified the U.S. Department of Agriculture about E. coli illness in Butler County. A sample of ground beef in a home there tested positive for E. coli, a bacteria which can cause severe food poisoning and even death in humans.

The Emporia, Kansas-based food giant told Reuters that the affected beef went to market in August, with a “best before or freeze by” date of September 12. This means that most of the potentially contaminated meat has already been consumed, but Tyson is advising people to check their freezers and discard or return any questionable meat.

Among the Tyson meat products being recalled:  Kroger-brand ground beef with a product code D-0211 QW; Butcher’s Brand beef with a product code D-0211 LWIF; and generic label beef with a product code D-0211 LWI.

Tyson will answer consumer inquiries on  1-866-328-3156.
