The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has issued a recall for more than 62,000 pounds of beef due to E. coli concerns ahead of Memorial Day weekend.

According to the USDA, the meat was packaged at the Aurora Packing Company in Illinois on April 19, but was shipped nationwide for distribution.

The recalled products have the establishment number “EST. 788” with the USDA inspection mark.

The items include more than 40 products. You can view the full list here.

The possible E. coli contamination was discovered after a random sampling, and the USDA says there have been no reported cases of illness related to this recall.
