30,000 Pounds of Ground Beef Have Been Recalled
Washington Beef, LLC is recalling 30,260 pounds of ground beef nationwide due to potential contamination of “extraneous materials, specifically hard plastic and metal.”
Hopefully you weren’t planning on barbecue’s soon with burgers. I mean, there is always turkey!
Issued on March 2, 2019 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the press release notes that consumers should be aware of any brand products marked with the establishment number EST 235 inside of the USDA seal on the packaging.
The ground beef chubs were produced on Dec. 27, 2018 and include a “Use or Freeze by” date of 01/20/19.
