OTTAWA - Federal health officials are recalling packages of ground beef produced by Winnipeg-based Cargill Meat Solutions due to concerns about E.coli.

The meat carries the Your Fresh Market brand name and is sold at Walmart stores in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

The extra lean ground beef sirloin, extra lean ground beef, medium ground beef and lean ground beef is sold in 475-gram, 900-gram and 1.6-kilogram packages.

All carry a best-before date of either Nov. 28 or 29.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were bought.

Food contaminated with E.coli O157 may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea.
