Massive beef recall impacts Kroger, Laura’s Lean Beef

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced the Tolleson, Arizona-based company is now recalling an additional 5.1 million pounds of raw non-intact products. The affected products, including ground beef, were packaged on various dates from July 26, 2018 to September 7, 2018.

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned that some consumers may have the recalled products in their freezers.

All recalled products will have the establishment number “EST. 267” inside the USDA mark of inspection, so check your freezer today and throw any affected product out promptly or return to the store for a full refund.
