Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. has recalled about 8,500 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Saturday.

The move came after three people, two in Maine and one in New York, were identified as becoming ill from a strain of E. coli, the government said.

None of the three required hospitalization, said Cargill Inc. spokesman Mike Martin.

The USDA says it believes certain BJ's Wholesale Club stores in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Virginia received the products.
