  • Via USDA
If you've recently purchased boneless beef products from Waco-based H & B Packing Co., you're probably going to want to go ahead and toss it in the garbage.

The Texas packaging company issued a recall for the product, which tested positive for E. coli O103 and could have effected 73,742 pounds of boneless beef. The items were produced on March 6, 2017 and the recalled products include 60-lb. box containing boneless beef with case code 69029, and multiple combo bins containing 73,682 pounds of boneless beef with case code 69029 with the production date 03/06/17, according to the USDA.

So far, there have been no confirmed cases of illness due to the meat, but customers who've purchased the beef product are advised to dispose of the product or return it to the place of purchase.
