NEW YORK MILLS, N.Y. (AP) — More than 12,000 pounds of boneless veal products distributed to wholesalers in New York and California have been recalled.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that United Processing LLC recalled the 12,600 pounds of veal products Friday.

The USDA says they may be contaminated with strains of E. coli. The boneless veal was produced on June 17, 18, 24, 28 and 29, and distributed in 60-pound boxes.

The USDA says the firm inadvertently shipped the products after government regulators became aware of the possible contamination during an inspection.

A representative of United Processing LLC didn't immediately return a call for comment.

The USDA says the company hasn't received any reports of illnesses.

People infected with E. coli can experience dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
