A Kansas-based company is recalling about 50,000 pounds of ground beef products because of possible E. coli contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced.

National Beef Packing Company produced the products on July 18, 2013, and shipped them in 40- to 60-pound cases to retailers, wholesalers, and food service distributors all around the country. The products, which are marketed under the brands National Beef and NatureSource, have a "use by/freeze by" date of August 7, 2013.

This strain of E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, and dehydration, the USDA said. In the most severe cases, it can cause kidney failure.

The USDA urges consumers to cook ground beef to an internal temperature of 160° F to kill harmful bacteria.

Consumers can call 866-761-9472 or go to www.nationalbeef.com for details.
