Ground beef from a Tucson company is being recalled. The Arizona Department of Agriculture said the ground beef could be contaminated with E-coli. The recall is limited to customers in Tucson.

Western Meat Company sold its ground beef between Jan. 1, 2014, and April 30, 2015, to restaurants in Tucson. The Department of Agriculture issued the class II recall due to the remote possibility of "adverse health consequences."

However, a company spokesperson said the recall is voluntary. He said the affected restaurants have been notified and no one has gotten sick as a result.
