The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service recently announced a recall of over 2,000 pounds of Amity Packing Company raw ground beef products due to the possibility of contamination with extraneous materials. Representatives from Pre Brands, LLC did not immediately return Red Tricycle’s request for comment.

If you think you might have the recalled beef, read on for important information.

Recalled Product Description: Ground Beef

The recall includes one-pound vacuum-packed “Pre 95% LEAN/5% FAT GROUND BEEF” products produced on Jan. 6, 2020 that bear the establishment number “EST. 6916” and the lot code “0060.”

The products were shipped to retailers in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Why the Beef Was Recalled

Pre Brands received two complaints, citing that the customers found clear, thin pliable plastic in the ground beef products. As of now there are no injuries or illnesses as a result of the recalled beef.

How to Tell If Your Beef Was Recalled

Check your fridge and freezer for the recalled beef. Look for the lot code “0060” and case code “11402” on the product label. The label also includes the use/freeze by date “01/31/2020.” The establishment code “EST. 6916” is printed on the right, front side of the beef’s packaging.

What Consumers Can Do

If you have the recalled product, don’t eat it. Throw the beef out or bring it back to the place of purchase. You can also contact Pre Brands at 1-844-773-3663 with questions about the recall.
