It’s time to open up your refrigerator or freezer, and check that ground beef. There has been a recall!
There have been two cases of small pieces of plastic interlaced in with the ground beef, and this constitutes a Class II Level Recall.
That is more than 2,000 pounds of beef recalled due to possible plastic contamination.
According to the FDA, a Class II Recall means there is “a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.”
The Chicago based packing plant, Amity Packing Company, issued the recall after there were two customer complaints about the affected meat.
All ground beef in question was produced on January 6, 2020. It will show an expiration date of January 31, 2020.
It appears to only affect beef that is 95% / 5% lean ground beef.
Check those labels! It will be lot number 0060, and case number 11402.
The beef in question was shipped and sold in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Don’t forget to check that freezer!
