A North Carolina food processor has recalled more than 35,000 pounds of ground beef, some sold in Kroger stores, for possible contamination with plastic bits, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
JBS USA is recalling 35,464 pounds of raw ground beef processed at its Lenoir, N.C., facility for possible contamination with hard plastic pieces, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced late Wednesday. The recall comes after a consumer found blue, hard plastic pieces in one of the products, the USDA says.
The department says there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of the products, which were produced March 22, 2018.
The ground beef, sold in a variety of packages, were shipped to distribution centers in Virginia and Indiana and sent to retailers including Kroger stores. The products carry a sell-by date of April 9, 2018 and a USDA mark with the number EST. 34176.
