The USDA is issuing a public health alert following a recall from Canada over beef possibly tainted with E Coli. The raw beef was exported into the U.S., then used in producing a variety of food products from burger patties to gyros. Here's the list of products under the recall.

The raw meat was shipped to 10 states including, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut,  Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont: This recall is more complicated because the raw meat was used in several products.
