    The USDA warned people not to eat these and certain other ShopRite burger products due to E. coli risk.

    The USDA is warning consumers and institutions not to eat certain beef products, including some ShopRite packaged burgers and a variety of halal items, due to the risk of E. coli contamination. 

    The Food Safety Inspection Service issued a public health alert for raw beef imported from Canada by a meat-packing firm.

    The meat, FSIS warned, may be contaminated with the potentially deadly bacteria. 

    FSIS said the products were distributed in Connecticut, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

    The agency warned consumers and institutions not to eat the following products:
