Over 16,000 pounds of ground beef sold at Walmart stores in 12 states has been recalled because they may be contaminated with E.coli.

Cargill Meat Solutions, located in Hazleton, Pa., officially issued the recall. The ground beef items were produced on April 26-27 and delivered to Walmart locations in the following states: Connecticut; Massachusetts; Maryland; New Hampshire; North Carolina; New York; Ohio; Pennsylvania; Virginia; Vermont; Washington, D.C.; and West Virginia.
