More than 21 tons of ground beef are being recalled due to possible E. coli contamination. Some of the meat was sold at Walmart stores.

The Department of Agriculture announced Saturday the Lakeside Refrigerated Services in Swedesboro, New Jersey, was recalling the ground beef packages made on June 1.

The meat packages were shipped to retail locations nationwide and include brands such as Thomas Farms and Marketside Butcher, which are sold at Walmart.

The affected products include an establishment number “EST. 46841” inside the USDA inspection mark.

The federal recall notice said the problem was discovered during a routine test.
