A California company has announced a voluntary recall of 75,000 pounds of beef in several states due to risk of possible E. coli contamination.

The ground beef was shipped by United Food Group of California, to retail distribution centers located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

The beef was sold under the brand names Moran’s All Natural, Stater Bros., and Inter-American Products, Inc. The meat was available at Albertson’s, Grocery Outlet, Fry’s, Save-A-Lot, Save-Mart and Smart and Final.

Consumers are warned to check their freezers and discard any beef that has a product date of April 20th.
