Ground Beef Recall

A North Carolina-based company has announced the recall of 35,464 pounds of raw ground beef.

JBS USA, in a U.S. Department of Agriculture news release, says the products may be contaminated with “extraneous materials,” specifically hard plastic.

The company said it received a complaint from a consumer who found blue, hard plastic pieces in one of the products. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of the products.

The raw ground beef was produced March 22, 2018. The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 34176” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items were shipped to distribution centers in Virginia and Indiana for further distribution to retail locations.

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned some of the affected ground beef may be frozen in consumers’s freezers.

Anyone who may have purchased the products is urged not to consume them. The products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The following products are subject to the recall:
