An Oklahoma company is recalling around 20,373 pounds of beef patties that could possibly be contaminated with foreign materials, specifically purple plastic.
Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Services announced that the flame-broiled beef patties by Advance Pierre Foods Inc. are subject to recall. The frozen patties were produced on November 30, 2018, and come in 14.06-pound cases that contain three bags with 30 pieces for a total of 90 portions.
Their case code is 155-525-0 and have package code 8334. The products will have the establishment number “EST. 2260E” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The recalled patties were shipped to food service locations across the nation. Though the product was shipped to schools, it was from a commercial sale and is not part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program.
While there have been no confirmed reports of reactions due to the consumption of the products, those concerned about illness or injury should contact their healthcare provider.
Locations that purchased these products are encouraged to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
