Beef is one of the most popular foods in the world. Millions of Americans consume beef on a daily basis and lots of mothers feed the meat to their families.

Now, a major recall has just made headlines. According to reports, 30,000 pounds of ground beef is being recalled after a discovery was made that showed "extraneous materials" were found in the meat.

"The recall affects approximately 30,260 pounds of ground beef, according to a news release posted on the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) website, and comes after a consumer complained about contamination on Feb. 28, 2019. The release did not specify what kind of material was found in the product," reported Fox News.

At this time, no adverse reactions due to consumption of the tainted meat have been confirmed. The company is being very proactive in trying to spread the word about the incident and alert customers.

“'FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen in consumers’ freezers,' the news release said. '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,'" reported Fox.

The recall is said to affect ground beef chubs that were produced on Dec. 27, 2018, that have a “use or freeze by” date of Jan. 20, 2019. Consumers may also contact representatives of the Washington Beef company at 855-472-6455 for further information, or consult the FSIS virtual representative.
