A meatpacking plant in Liberal, Kan., is recalling about 50,100 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli bacteria, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Wednesday.

The products were produced July 18 by the National Beef Packing Co. and were shipped in 40-60 pound cases to retailers, wholesalers and food service distributors nationwide.

The USDA said these products are subject to the recall:

• 10 lb. chub of “National Beef” 93/ 7 Fine Ground Beef, Product Code 0707

• 10 lb. chub of “NatureSource” 80/20 Fine Ground Chuck, Product Code 7031

• 10 lb. chub of “NatureSource” 85/15 Fine Ground Beef, Product Code 7054

• 10 lb. chub of “NatureSource” 90/10 Fine Ground Beef, Product Code 7344

• 10 lb. chub of “NatureSource” 93/ 7 Fine Ground Beef, Product Code 7004

• 10 lb. chub of “NatureWell 80/20 Fine Ground Chuck, Product Code 7484

• 10 lb. chub of “NatureWell” 85/15 Fine Ground Beef, Product Code 7454

• 10 lb. chub of “NatureWell” 90/10 Fine Ground Sirloin, Product Code 7577

• 10 lb. chub of “NatureWell” 93/7 Fine Ground Beef, Product Code 7404

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said neither it nor the company had received any reports of illness associated with the products. People concerned about an illness should contact a doctor.

National Beef also recalled nearly 23,000 pounds of ground beef products in June for possible E. coli contamination.
