Kroger grocery stores have issued a recall of more than 35,000 pounds of ground beef. The recall comes after consumers began complaining that there were pieces of hard plastic in their ground piece.

The beef comes from a single North Carolina food processing company called CBS USA. They supply meat to Kroger.

"JBS USA decided to recall the items after a consumer complained that hard, blue pieces of plastic were found in one of the products, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement," reported CNN.

The beef, which was produced on March 22, was shipped to distribution centers in Indiana and Virginia. It is for sale in stores in those states.

The meat is packaged under the labels Kroger Ground Beef, Private Selection Angus Beef, Kroger Ground Sirloin, and All Natural Laura's Lean Beef. It's stamped with "EST. 34176" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

"There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products," the USDA said. "Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider."

The company advises consumers who bought the affected meat to not eat the ground beef. Instead, they are encouraged to throw it away or return it to the store.
