Supermarkets chain Winn-Dixie and Bi-Lo is recalling some ground beef because of the risk that the meat has been contaminated with E. coli.

The chains announced the recall Thursday as part of a larger ground beef recall issued by the National Beef Packing Company.

E. coli can cause diarrhea, dehydration and potentially kidney failure.

Bi-Lo is recalling the affected Fresh 93 Percent Lean Ground Beef from all stores in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The Bi-Lo website says the recall impacts the product with the UPC code: 24370700000.

The product was shipped to stores around July 18.

Neither has received reports of any related illnesses.

Consumers can bring the product to the store for a refund.

7 On Your Side talked with Kimberly Baker, Food Safety Associate with the Clemson Cooperative Extension.

"I've seen a lot of people post on facebook that they've removed the packaging, they've bagged it up, and they don't know if it's that meat or not," Baker said. "There really is little to no concern left if you've cooked it to the right temperature."

Baker says the USDA recommends 160 degrees Fahrenheit for ground beef. She says if you've used the meat in a casserole, make sure it's 165 degrees.
