Some troubling news was just reported about more than 10 tons of frozen beef. According to reports, over 20,000 pounds of frozen beef patties have been recalled.
The beef patties in question were shipped to schools and food services nationwide. Now, they have been recalled over the possibility that they contain purple plastic.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture made the announcement that AdvancePierre Foods was making the recall. They said that they “may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically soft purple plastic.”
According to Fox News, the beef patties were produced on November 30, 2018. Now, over 20,000 pounds have been recalled.
Below is the product information:
14.06-lb. cases containing three bags with 30 pieces for a total of 90 portions of “CN FULLY COOKED FLAME BROILED BEEF PATTIES CARAMEL COLOR ADDED” with case code 155-525-0 and package code 8334.
According to reports, the beef patties were sent around the nation to food services and to schools. There were at least two complaints, prompting the company to make the recall.
Thankfully, no confirmed reports of injury have been made regarding the product. However, the USDA has told consumers not to serve or consume the products in question.
