(WFSB) - Ground beef sold at ShopRite is being recalled because of E.coli fears.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, or FSIS, the beef was imported from Ontario, Canada.

The raw non-intact beef products were recalled by the Ryding-Regency Meat Packers, Ltd.

While Canadian authorities are the ones behind the recall, FSIS is distributing the health alert to the U.S.
