Skyline Provisions, Inc., a well-known establishment in Harvey, Illinois, has issued a voluntary recall of approximately 5,620 pounds of raw ground beef products following concerns of potential contamination with a foreign object.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) made this announcement Sunday.
The affected raw ground beef items, produced and packed on August 19, 2023, include the following products:

These products bear the establishment number "EST. 19300" inside the USDA mark of inspection and were distributed to institutions in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
It's important to note that, as of now, New Jersey has not been included in the recall.The recall stems from a customer complaint received by FSIS, indicating the discovery of a foreign object during food preparation.
Fortunately, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or injuries resulting from the consumption of these products.
FSIS has not received additional reports of illness related to these products. Nevertheless, anyone concerned about potential injury or illness should seek advice from a healthcare provider.
Consumers are advised to check their refrigerators or freezers for the affected products and, if found, return them to the place of purchase or dispose of them properly.
The company and FSIS are actively working together to ensure the safety of consumers and investigate the source of contamination.
