Sam Kane Beef Processors, LLC, a Corpus Christi, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 2,633 pounds of ground beef chub product that may be contaminated with foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following product is subject to USDA recall:

  • 10 lb. chubs of “HEB Ground Beef 73% Fine 6/10”

The ground beef chubs were produced and packaged on Sept. 11, 2014. The product bears the establishment number “EST 337” on the package box. The product was sent to retail establishments in Texas for further processing.

The problem was discovered by the retail company. A store clerk noticed pieces of small blue plastic inside the packages and alerted the company to the problem. The company stated the likely source of the plastic is a rubber glove. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact Alfred Bausch, General Manager, at (361) 241-5000.
