The beef products -- from Chicago-based Amity Packing Company -- could have “clear, thin pliable plastic” in them, according to a recall notice published Friday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The recalled items were produced on Jan. 6, 2020, and shipped to retailers in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, according to the notice.
The specific products that are being recalled are 1-pound vacuum-packed containers labeled as “Pre 95% LEAN/5% FAT GROUND BEEF.” The products also have lot code “0060,” case code “11402” and a Use/Freeze By date of “01/31/2020,” the agency said.
"We received two consumer inquiries about potential small, soft, clear plastic" in the product, a company spokesperson told FOX Business in a statement.
"We quickly identified the limited production of potential product" and worked with the USDA on a voluntary recall, the spokesperson added. "We care deeply about the health and safety of those who enjoy our products."
There have not been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions from people consuming the products, according to the USDA.
