While there have been no reports of people eating a tainted piece of meat, the federal agency reports that it was made aware after two pieces of green hard plastic were found in ground beef products on the 5th. April.

The affected ground beef products were shipped to retail outlets in Michigan and Wisconsin.

“FSIS is concerned that some products may be frozen and in consumer freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them, ”the federal agency wrote in the announcement.

“These products must be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.”

The products concerned bear the establishment mark “EST. 562M “on the USDA inspection mark at the bottom of the label. The items included in the recall were produced on March 20, according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service.
