According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a Kansas company has recalled approximately 50,000 pounds of meat due to a possible e.coli contamination.

The beef, which was sold by the National Beef Packing Company, was sent to retailers, wholesalers and food services distributors across the country. Affected products include:
