The Vermont Department of Health says ground beef from a farm in Shelburne is being recalled because of possible E. coli contamination.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says butcher shop Harrington and Sons Packing, of Williston, recalled approximately 68 pounds of ground beef products that were produced on Dec. 15.

Most of the meat has already been retrieved and was not served to customers.

No illnesses have been reported.

The products subject to recall are 10-pound and 1.5 pound packages of "LaPlatte River Angus Farm, LLC Natural Ground Beef" of Shelburne.

Each label has the phrase "EST. 8751" and the identifying case code "093491."
