New England, Check Your Freezers! Ground Beef Recall Touches All 6 New England States – Look for This
There has been no shortage of food recalls recently and hey look here comes another! Thankfully much of our meat intake will shift to poultry as Thanksgiving approaches this week, thankfully because 5,620 pounds of ground beef is currently being recalled in 8 states – 6 of which are in New England.
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine, Vermont, and Connecticut are all being warned of the recall as potentially contaminated ground beef was sent to be sold in all 6 New England states.
Skyline Provisions, an Illinois-based company, has recalled right around 5,620 pounds of raw ground beef because it may be contaminated with “a foreign object,” according to a notice from the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. The ground beef in question was produced and packed on August 19, 2023. New York and Wisconsin were also sent the now recalled meat.
The recall applies to the following products:
20-pound carton boxes containing four packages of “SKYLINE PROVISIONS, INC. GROUND BEEF 81/19” with “ITEM # 000248” printed on the label.
20-pound carton boxes containing four packages of “SKYLINE PROVISIONS, INC. GROUND BEEF 75/25” with “ITEM # 000293” printed on the label.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service noted that the issue with the meat was identified after a customer found a foreign object while preparing the food to eat. The foreign object has not been specified. The agency is urging customers to throw away the ground beef or return it to its place of purchase if found in possession.
