The recall was announced by U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on February 4.

The following is a list of products affected by this recall:

The products have a USDA mark of inspection establishment number of Est. 34715. All products were produced on just one day: Dec. 5, 2013. They were distributed to various retail stores and restaurants in the states of Arizona, Texas, and Oklahoma as well as locations in Puerto Rico.

There are no reports of illness associated with the consumption of the affected products at this time.

"Food contamination is serious business," said Drazen Alcocer, founder and CEO of iFederated, parent company of iRecalls.com. "While most of that meat was probably safe, even trace amounts of E-Coli can be deadly. This was the right move."

"E-Coli is one of those contaminants that gets a lot of attention but often that happens too late," added Artin Afsharjavan, iFederated Chairman. "All the more reason why, when something like this happens, a resource like iRecalls.com is necessary."
