864,000 pounds of beef products were recalled Monday by a California based company.

Huntington Meat Packing Incorporated is recalling the beef, that they say may be contaminated with E. coli, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.  The meat was shipped to distribution centers, restaurants, and hotels within the State of California, the FSIS said.

The following products, consisting of all ground beef products produced by the plant from January 5, 2010 to January 15, 2010, are being recalled:

    * 40 lb. boxes of "Huntington Meats Ground Beef"
    * 40 lb. boxes of "HUNTINGTON MEAT PKG. INC. BEEF GROUND FOR FURTHER PROCESSING"
    * 40 lb. boxes of "BEEF BURRITO FILLING MIX"
    * 10 lb. boxes of "IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY"
    * 20 lb. boxes of "IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY"
    * 10 lb. boxes of "El Rancho MEAT & PROVISION ALL BEEF PATTIES"

Each box of the above has the establishment number "EST. 17967" written on its label.

When investigating these more recent batches for the possibility of E.coli, the FSIS also found the following products, produced from February 19, 2008 to May 15, 2008, may be contaminated, too, and are also being recalled:

    * 40 lb. boxes of "Huntington Meats Ground Beef"
    * 40 lb. boxes of " HUNTINGTON MEAT PKG. INC. BEEF GROUND FOR FURTHER PROCESSING"
    * 40 lb. boxes of "BEEF BURRITO FILLING MIX"
    * 10 lb. boxes of "IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY"
    * 20 lb. boxes of "IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY"
    * 10 lb. boxes of "El Rancho MEAT & PROVISION ALL BEEF PATTIES"

Each of those boxes has the establishment number "EST. 17967" written on its label.

So far, there have been no reports of people getting sick from the recalled products, according to the FSIS.
