Public Health Alert: Raw Beef Recall in Michigan Due to Contamination
Check your fridge and freezer - here's another food recall.
Packages of Mott's applesauce were recently recalled and Trader Joe's has been having quite a few issues with recalls lately. This time it's another retailer with multiple locations across Michigan.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has issued a public health alert about the raw beef product suspected of containing plastic. Technically its not a recall because the product is no longer being sold, but you might still have some in your refrigerator or freezer.
The beef was sold at Aldi locations throughout the state and nationwide.
Here is the product to watch out for:
Approximately 1.5-lb plastic tray packages containing “USDA CHOICE BLACK ANGUS BEEF FROM ALDI, BEEF FOR CARNE PICADA” with a “Use or Freeze by” date of Aug. 22, 2023, Julian Date 206, and time stamp between 08:43 through 09:23. The product bears the establishment number Est. 85M on the back label.
The problem was discovered when the establishment notified FSIS that it received a complaint from a retail store that soft, clear plastic was noticed in the product.
According to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, so far there have not been any confirmed reports of injury or illness due to consumption of the beef.
FSIS says anyone who bought this product should not eat it. Throw it away or return it to where you bought it.
Anyone with questions about the public health alert should call Cargill at 844-419-1574.
