(WTOL) - Cargill Meat Solutions is recalling about 132,606 pounds of ground beef products nationwide due to E. coli concerns.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) says they were notified of an investigation into E. coli on August 16 of this year, and determined raw meat was the source.

Cargill Meat Solutions' ground beef products were identified following further investigation that found the case-patients consumed ground beef products purchased at various retail stores that were supplied by Cargill Meat Solutions.

FSIS says 17 people fell ill and one person died from E. coli from July 5 and July 25, and determined the raw ground beef was the probable source of the illness.

The ground beef items in question were packaged on June 21, 2018.
