DETROIT (AP) — Officials say a Detroit-based business is recalling about 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products sold for restaurant use in as many as nine states that may be contaminated with the bacteria E. coli.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says the recall affects Wolverine Packing Co. products, produced between March 31 and April 18. They were shipped to distributors in Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, and Ohio.

Packages bear the establishment number “EST. 2574B” and will have a production date code in the format “Packing Nos: MM DD 14″ between “03 31 14″ and “04 18 14.”

The Food Safety and Inspection Service says 11 cases of illness have been identified.
