Ground beef recall: 100K pounds of raw ground beef recalled due to this contamination

Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc. in Amarillo, Texas, is recalling about 10,000 pounds of raw ground beef due to it being contaminated with “reflective mirror-like material,” according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The recall involves raw ground beef produced Nov. 2 at the Tyson Foods facility in Amarillo.

The following products are subject to recall, according to the FSIS:

  • 10-lb. packages containing “HILL COUNTRY FARE GROUND BEEF 73% LEAN/ 27% FAT with BEST BEFORE OR FREEZE BY: NOV 25, 2022.”
  • 5-lb. packages containing “HILL COUNTRY FARE GROUND BEEF 73% LEAN/ 27% FAT with BEST BEFORE OR FREEZE BY: NOV 25, 2022.”
  • 5-lb. packages containing “HEB GROUND CHUCK GROUND BEEF 80% LEAN/ 20% FAT.”

The recalled products have the establishment number “EST. 245E” on the seam of the package. The affected products were shipped to stores in Texas.

The USDA’s FSIS found out about the problem when Tyson Foods informed the organization about consumer complaints of “mirror-like” material in the meat purchased in grocery stores.

As of Friday, there have been no reports of injury or illness related to the recall, according to the company.

People who are worried about injury or illness should get in touch with their local healthcare provider.

FSIS is urging consumers, who may have purchased the recalled products, to throw them out or return them to the store where they purchased them.
