NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- If you're planning on firing up the grill this Memorial Day weekend, you may want to double check your meat products.


The USDA has issued a recall of more than 62,000 lbs of raw beef due to E. coli concerns.

The meat was packaged at the Aurora Packing Company in North Aurora, Illinois on April 19, and shipped nationwide for distribution.

The recall includes more than 40 products including cuts of steak, ribeyes, and ribs.

Officials say the possible contamination was discovered after a random sampling, and there have been no reported cases of the illness related to the recall.
