Kane Beef voluntary recalls ground beef

Special to the Courier

On Wednesday, August 10, officials with Kane Beef initiated a precautionary Class II recall of approximately 60,350 pounds of Fresh Ground Beef.
“Kane Beef is committed to the safety and integrity of our products and is issuing the recall because of a possible presence of a foreign object, thought to be an aluminum fastener used to secure packages of ground beef,” said a spokesman for the company.
All recalled products were produced at the Kane Beef plant in Corpus Christi, USDA Establishment Number #337. All products were shipped to a single retailer – H-E-B – throughout Texas.
Kane Beef learned of the possible presence of a foreign object from a consumer who had reported finding a small piece of metal in the ground beef package. The only customer affected by this recall is the one who reported the issue to Kane Beef. No injuries or illnesses have been associated with this product.
The following products are subject to the precautionary recall:
• 3 lb. packages of “Hill Country Fare Ground Beef”, “73% Lean, 27% Fat”, bearing establishment number “337” and a use by date of 8/15/2016.
• 5 lb. packages of “Hill Country Fare Ground Beef”, “73% Lean, 27% Fat”, bearing establishment number “337” and a use by date of 8/15/2016.
• 10 lb. packages of “Hill Country Fare Ground Beef”, “73% Lean, 27% Fat”, bearing establishment number “337” and a use by date of 8/15/2016.
No other Kane Beef products are involved in the recall. Consumers who purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Mysti Richardson, director of marketing, at 361-241-5000, Ext. 241.
