Taco Bell seasoned beef recalled over metal contamination

Taco Bell seasoned beef recalled over metal contamination”

By Monday, 100% of the product had been removed from all restaurants across 21 states, a Taco bell news release said.

There have been no confirmed reports of people suffering adverse reactions after consuming the beef, USDA says.

The issue was discovered when customers reported finding a metal shaving in their food.

The alleged metal-tainted meat was produced by Kenosha Beef between September 20 and October 4, and then transported to five distribution centers (in Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Virginia), USA Today reported.

There are some concerns over the possibility of the ground beef being contaminated with metal shavings. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness is advised to contact a healthcare provider.

Will you be jumping back on the Taco Bell bandwagon anytime soon? The potentially contaminated products were shipped in cases containing eight five pound bags of the meat product with the establishment number "EST".

A spokesperson for the restaurant told Fox News that while they work to "replenish the supply" of beef in their affected locations, they "encourage fans to try any of our other delicious proteins like shredded chicken or steak in the meantime".

Restaurants that have purchased those products are urged not to serve them, officials said.

Customers first began taking note of a beef shortage at their local Taco Bells over the weekend, with some in disbelief that the chain would run out of one of its most popular ingredients.

USDA's food safety unit routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
