A New Jersey-based food distributor has issued a recall for nearly 43,000 pounds of ground beef over concern for possible E. coli contamination.

Lakeside Refrigerated Services, of Swedesboro, issued its recall for at last 7 different items produced June 1, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The raw ground beef items were shipped to nationwide retail locations, including Walmart stores and sold as grass-fed beef under the brands "Marketside Butcher" and "Thomas Farms."

E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps between 2 and 8 days after exposure the organism, according to the USDA.

While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). The condition is most common in children younger than 5 and older adults.
