A company that sells meat to BJ's Wholesale Club stores is recalling about 8,500 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli and has been linked to three consumers getting sick, says the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. is recalling 42-pound cases of "Ground Beef Fine 90/10" with a use-by-or-freeze-by date of July 1, 2010. The meat was shipped to distribution centers in Connecticut and Maryland, repackaged into consumer packages and sold under yet-to-be-named retail brands. The USDA says consumers bought the meat at some BJ's Wholesale Clubs in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Virginia. The retail giant was the only business listed.
