Meat recall announced

— Nearly 90,000 pounds of beef products are being recalled because they are contaminated with wood materials.

That’s according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which issued the recall yesterday.

The recall is focused on Sam’s Choice Black Angus Vidalia Onion items produced on various dates between Nov. 19, 2015, and Dec. 9, 2015.

Products subject to recall include two-pound boxes containing six pieces of “Sam’s Choice Black Angus Beef Patties with 19% Vidalia Onion” carrying use by dates of May 17, May 29 and June 6, 2016.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 394A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The foreign material originated with an incoming ingredient and was discovered during production.

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

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.
