Just in time for grilling season, more than 62,000 pounds of raw beef products are being recalled due to E. coli concerns.

The products being recalled were packaged on April 19 and include brisket, ribs, and chuck, among other cuts of beef. Products covered by the recall carry an establishment number of "EST. 788" inside the USDA's mark of inspection. More than 40 types of beef are included in the recall and were shipped nationwide for distribution.

The contamination was discovered during traceback activities in response to random sample testing, according to FSIS.

China urges sincerity in Sino-US trade talks | #AsiaNewsNetwork
China is seeking to support from some of its Asian neighbors and Russian Federation in its escalating tariff fight with the U.S. An escalating trade war between the us and China could mean higher prices on a broad array of products from toys to clothing.

While the company said it has not received any reports of adverse reactions to recalled products, the recall comes amid an E. coli outbreak that has now sickened almost 200 people across 10 states. The labels of the recalled items can be found here . These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. Most people recover within a week, but some can develop kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which is most common in children younger than 5 and in the elderly. Anyone with these symptoms who believes they have eaten the affected products should seek immediate medical care, the USDA advised.
