NEW JERSEY (CBS 3) ― Thousands of pounds of ground beef are being recalled across the Northeast after an E. coli scare.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Pennsylvania-based Cargill Meat Solutions Corp is recalling 8,500 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated. The recall is happening at BJ’s Wholesale Club stores in eight states, including New Jersey.

“The ground beef that is being recalled had a use by date of July 1. If people still have the product it would likely be frozen,” said BJ’s spokeswoman Kelly McFall. “The store is going to be sending out letters to all members who purchased the item.”
