A national wholesale meats company has recalled 2,122 pounds of raw ground beef patties due to extraneous materials found in the product.
Multiple complaints were received regarding a Pre Brands product containing “rubber-like” material, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The company found the packages contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of white neoprene.
Weinstein Wholesale Meats, Inc., out of Forest Park, Illinois, produced 10.7-ounce vacuum-sealed packages filled with two “100% grass-fed and finished beef burger patties” in each package. The products were 85% lean with 15% fat content, embedded with a use by or freeze date of April 11, 2023 on the label. The products are stamped with a recall bear establishment number “Est. 6987,” located in the USDA mark of inspection.
The patties were shipped to an online distributor and sold nationwide. No reports of adverse reactions have been received as of press.
FSIS advises anyone with the product in their refrigerators or freezers dispose of or return to the place of purchase rather than consume them.
