HEREFORD, Texas (AP) — A meat packer in the Texas Panhandle has recalled nearly 12 tons of beef trimmings products due to possible E. coli contamination.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday night announced the recall involving Caviness Beef Packers in Hereford.

The recall involves approximately 23,100 pounds of products produced from Aug. 14 through Aug. 20. The federal agency did not report any individuals getting sick. E. coli is a bacteria with strains that can cause severe food poisoning.

The problem was discovered during a food safety assessment. The USDA says the products subject to recall are lots that tested negative, but were produced consecutive to the positive lots and were subsequently processed into raw ground products and distributed to retailers.

The recall products are:

— Combo bins containing “Beef Trimmings, BNLS, 90 L”

— Combo bins containing “Beef Trimmings, BNLS, 84 L”

The products bear the establishment number “EST. 675” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were sent to establishments for further processing and will likely not bear the establishment number “EST. 675” on products available for direct consumer purchase. The products were shipped to fast food restaurants and retail distribution locations in Texas.
