HEB Recalls 38 Tons of Beef for Possible Metal Contamination
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The HEB supermarket chain is recalling almost 38 tons of fresh beef products over concerns that it might be contaminated with metal fragments from a failed bearing.
The recall was announced Thursday by the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It includes vacuum-sealed packages of "Seasoned Beef Skirt Steak for Fajitas," ''Seasoned Beef for Carne Guisada," ''Seasoned Beef for Fajitas," ''Mi Comida Seasoned Beef Skirt Steak for Fajitas" and "Seasoned Texas BBQ Rub Beef Skirt Steak" with sell-by dates of July 4-5. It also includes foam trays of "Beef for Stew," packed June 9-28 or with a sell-by date of June 24.
HEB employees found metal shavings in products on June 10, and an investigation traced them to a failed bearing in auger machinery.
