The Hopatcong-Sparta Patch shared a story from the Manasquan-Belmar Patch regarding ground beef that was recalled and happened to be shipped to parts of New Jersey.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, more than 2,000 pounds of raw ground beef that may contain "clear, thin pliable plastic" have been recalled.
Pre Brands LLC received two complaints by consumers reporting the clear, thin plastic in the raw ground beef from Amity Packing Company.
The one pound vacuum-packed packages that contain "Pre 95 percent lean 5 percent fat ground beef" with a lot code of "0060," a case code of "11402" and a use/freeze by date of Jan. 31 2020 on the label, are subject to recall.
These packages of meat had been shipped to different areas of New Jersey, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
