OTTAWA, Canada - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a health warning that beef products sold in two British Columbia communities could be tainted with E. coli bacteria.

The meat, from Ranchers Beef of Balzac, Alberta, includes boneless chuck steak and ground beef products sold at Shoppers Wholesale and Mr. G retail outlets in Prince George between June 20 and June 30, and ground beef sold at Buy-Low Foods in Lillooet between August 14th and 24th.

Distributors are voluntarily recalling any affected products still in the marketplace, and consumers with the affected meat in their freezers are being advised not to consume it.
