If you’ve purchased raw ground beef recently, there’s a chance it has been recalled! The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released an official recall on January 24, 2020, stating that Amity Packing Company Inc, a Chicago establishment is recalling about 2, 020 pounds of raw ground beef products due to possible foreign matter contamination. The recall was issued after two consumers complained they found clear, thin pliable plastic in raw ground beef.

The possible contamination includes raw ground beef products that were produced on January 6, 2020, and carry an establishment number “EST. 6916” that can be found on the front side of the packaging in the right corner. These products were shipped to retail locations in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois.

The USDA report states the products that are subject to recall are: “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.” View the label HERE.

While there are no confirmed reports of injury or illness due to the consumption of these products, consumers are still encouraged to contact their health care provider if you’re are concerned.

Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) is labeling this recall a Class II, “This is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of this product”. Consumers are encouraged to check their fridge and freezer for these recalled products immediately. If you do have them do not consume them and instead, throw it out or return to the place of purchase.
