The beef was sold by several large chains, including Sam's Club and Walmart.

The CDC says 33 people in 22 states had to be hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported.

Consumers should not eat the recalled beef and are urged to throw it away or return it to the store.

Consumers should check and see if they have ground beef in their homes labeled with the establishment number "Est.267".
