Meat company to recall 58,000 lbs tainted ground beef

At least 58,000 lbs of ground beef will be recalled by the California-based Central Valley Meat Company after it was found to be contaminated by small plastic bits, a report on September 24 said.

The recall was made after the U.S. Department of Agriculture found the contaminated ground beef during a probe following a consumer complaint. The ground beef under recall was to be served in the National School Lunch Program. No injury or illnesses were reported that were related to the tainted meat according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service.

A general manager from the Central Valley Meat Company said they are working out to figure out the cause of the contamination and will improve the safety of their products.

Sadly, many people sustain injuries and suffer health problems caused by contaminated foods. However, in such situations, negligent manufacturers can sometimes be held liable and compensation may be sought to cover losses.
