The recall was issued over the weekend by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this meat, but anyone concerned should contact their healthcare provider.

The raw ground beef items were produced on Jan. 6, 2020.

  • 1-lb. VACUUM-PACKED, packages containing “Pre 95% LEAN/5% FAT GROUND BEEF” with lot code “0060,” case code “11402” and USE/FREEZE BY date of “01/31/2020” on the product label.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 6916” printed on the right, front side of the package. These items were shipped to retail locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The problem was discovered after Pre Brands LLC. received two consumer complaints reporting findings of clear, thin pliable plastic in raw ground beef.
