Nationwide Beef Recall

Weinstein Wholesale Meats, Inc. is recalling around 2,122 pounds of the raw ground beef burger products. After receiving multiple customer complaints, the USDA found the product might contain foreign metal within the meat. Specifically pieces of white neoprene.


According to the company, the metal can be found in their 10.7oz packages labled "100% Grass Fed & Finished Beef Burger Patties 85% Lean/15%Fat". All were boxed up on February 16th, 2023, but labeled with "Use/Freeze By 4/11/23".

Here's what the packages look like:
