New Jersey

WASHINGTON, Oct. 14, 2019 – Kenosha Beef International recalled 2.3 million pounds of seasoned beef products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal shavings, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

According to company officials, the seasoned beef items were produced on various dates from Sept. 20, 2019, to Oct. 4, 2019. The following products are subject to recall:

Cases are containing eight 5-lb. plastic bags of “TACO BELL SEASONED Beef Taco and Burrito Filling” with use-by dates of “L2 11/4/19” to “L2 11/18/19”.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 10130” on the case. These items were shipped to five distribution centers, and from there shipped to restaurant locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS on Oct. 12, 2019, that it received three customer complaints.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in restaurant refrigerators. Restaurants who have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
