A Chicago company, Amity Packing Company, Inc. is recalling about 2,020 pounds of raw ground beef that was shipped to nine states, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA FSIS).
Two customers complained after finding foreign matter in the form of plastic in the beef, activating the recall. The beef is being recalled due to possible contamination with thin pliable plastic, according to a USDA FSIS news release on Friday, January 24, 2020.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 6916” printed on the right, front side of the package. These items were shipped to retail locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
1-lb. VACUUM-PACKED, packages containing “Pre 95% LEAN/5% FAT GROUND BEEF” with lot code “0060,” case code “11402” and USE/FREEZE BY date of “01/31/2020” on the product label.
The problem was discovered after Pre Brands LLC. received two consumer complaints reporting findings of clear, thin pliable plastic in raw ground beef.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Pre Brands LLC. at 1-844-773-3663.
According to the Pre Brands website, their products are available at Jewel-Osco, Mariano’s and Meijer.
