A meat processing company in Minnesota recently issued a recall of approximately 89,568 pounds of beef patties after an inspection revealed that some products contained wood debris, the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service stated on January 4.
In the Class II Recall submitted to federal authorities, the “Sam’s Choice Black Angus Beef Patties with Vidalia Onion” packed in two pound containers may possibly be contaminated with “extraneous wood materials.” The issue was discovered during the production stage. Neither the recalling company, Huisken Meat, nor the FSIS have received any reports of illnesses or injuries involving the affected beef patties. Consumers are warned not to eat the recalled products and to throw them away or take them back to the store for a refund as soon as possible.
