Posted: Updated:

JBS USA is recalling about 4,922 pounds of ground beef due to possible Styrofoam contamination.

The company is based in Lenior, North Carolina. The ground chuck beef items were produced on July 15, 2017 -- 2-lb. black Styrofoam plastic wrapped trays containing ground beef labeled “CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF GROUND CHUCK 80% LEAN 20% FAT” with the case code 541640.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 34176” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distribution center in North Carolina for further distribution.                      

The problem was discovered on July 29, 2017, when the establishment was made aware of foreign materials, specifically shredded pieces of Styrofoam packaging, in the product.

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