Raw ground beef recalled in nine states due to possible plastic contamination

Source: CNN

By Madeline Holcombe,

(CNN)A Chicago company is recalling about 2,020 pounds of raw ground beef that was shipped to nine states, federal health officials said.

The beef is being recalled due to possible contamination with thin pliable plastic, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday.

Two customers complained of finding the foreign matter in the beef, sparking the recall.

One-pound vacuum-packed packages containing lot code "0060," case code "11402" and a use or freeze by date of "01/31/2020" on the product label are subject to the recall, the department said.

3. I really kind of doubt it's much safer from contamination.

Why? Because generally speaking when it happens it's often because of negligence.

4. True. Nothing is 100% safe.

But I doubt veggie burger makers enjoy the kind of above-the-law impunity Big Beef has for decades.

8. USDA link to pdf of packing labels

Odd that CNN neither names the brand "Pre" or that the label is:

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.
