About 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products are being recalled due to possible E. coli contamination, according to federal food safety regulators.

Detroit-based Wolverine Packing Company had shipped the meat for restaurant use in Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio, according to the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The meat is linked to 11 cases of E. coli in four unnamed states. The E. coli bacteria causes dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps.

The agency released a full list Monday of the recalled products, which have the establishment number “EST. 2574B” sold March 31 to April 18.
