SALT LAKE CITY — If you're in the middle of cooking up dinner, you may want to check the label before frying that hamburger. Thousands of pounds of ground beef are being recalled over fears of a possible E. coli contamination.

The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service says the 2,300 pounds of beef under recall was manufactured in Salt Lake at Main Street Quality Meats on Oct. 18 and 19. Consumers are advised to check their labels for those dates if they have recently bought any type of beef products.

The recall includes a 10-pound cases labeled "ground beef bulk" and 12-pound cases labeled "ground beef patties."

Over 4,000 pounds of beef is also being recalled in Hawaii.

Although there is a possibility of E. coli contamination, no one has yet reported getting sick from the meat.
