Washington Beef is recalling approximately 30,260 pounds of ground beef chubs products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically hard plastic and metal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The ground beef chubs were produced on Dec. 27, 2018 and include a “Use or Freeze by” date of Jan. 20, 2019.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 235” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped nationwide.

The problem was discovered by a consumer complaint to the company on February 28, 2019.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

When available, the retail distribution list will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
