According to the USDA, the products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 5886A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These Ground Beef were purchased by USDA Foods for the National School Lunch Program (“NLSP”). These items were shipped to institutional locations in Maine and Connecticut.

The problem was discovered after the company and USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Services received consumer complaints about hard, white plastic material found in the fully cooked ground beef products.

In general, if plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.
