FORT WORTH, Texas -- A Fort Worth beef processor is recalling nearly 16,000 pounds of beef products, some sold in Arizona, because they may be contaminated by E. coli.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Tuesday that a high health risk existed for products provided by PFP Enterprises. There are no reports of consumers being sickened.

The products were produced Dec. 5 and distributed to retail stores and restaurants in Arizona, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, and Texas. The products subject to recall have the establishment number "Est. 34715" inside the USDA Mark of Inspection.

Federal inspectors became aware of the possible contamination through PFP Enterprises' testing program. Federal authorities said the company through an oversight failed to finalize testing to determine if contamination existed.

The government website Foodsafety.gov released a list of affected products:

• 10.5-lb. boxes of Beef Outside Skirt Steak, with a pack date of "12/13/13"

• 20-lb. boxes of Studio Movie Grill Beef Tenderloin Sliced, with a pack date of "12/05/13"

• 15-lb. boxes of Preseasoned Beef for Fajita, with a use by date of "1/13/14"

• 40-lb. boxes of Southwest Style Beef Skirts, with a pack date of "12/5/13"

• 20-lb. boxes of Patterson Food Processors Beef Skirt Seasoned, with a pack date of "12/9/13"

• 10-lb. boxes of Preseasoned Beef for Fajitas, with a pack date of "12/9/2013"

• 40-lb. boxes of Preseasoned Beef for Fajitas w/Binder, with a pack date of "12/9/2013"

• 12-lb. boxes of Seasoned Beef for Fajitas, containing 6 2-lb. packs, with a use by date of "1/15/14"

• 12-lb. boxes of Mexican Style Beef for Fajita, containing 6 2-lb. packs, with a use by date of "1/11/14"

E. coli is a bacteria with strains that can cause severe food poisoning.
