One person in the U.S. has died, and 17 others became ill after reportedly consuming meat linked to E. coli, according to the Press Herald. The beef comes from Cargill Meat Solutions in Colorado. Well over 132,000 pounds of meat linked to E. coli have been recalled.

The Press Herald reports that the recalled products include "3-, 10- and 20-pound packages of ground beef under the Our Certified, Excel, Sterling Silver, Certified and Fire River Farms brands with July 11th use or freeze by dates."

If you have any of these ground beef products in your refrigerator, it's best to either throw the meat away or return it to the grocery store where you purchased it for a refund.

Remember: Safety first.
