(HealthDay)—Nearly 43,000 pounds of ground beef products have been recalled by New Jersey-based Lakeside Refrigerated Services due to possible contamination with potentially deadly Escherichia coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) says.

The products were produced on June 1, 2020, and sold across the United States under the labels Marketside Butcher and Thomas Farms. There have not been any confirmed reports of illness due to consumption of these products, according to FSIS.

E. coli O157:H7 can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea, and abdominal cramps 28 days (34 days, on average) after exposure to the organism. Most people recover within a week, but some develop kidney failure, FSIS said.

For more information about the recall, consumers can call Lakeside at (856) 832-3881.
