Recall alert: Steaks sold nationwide may have ‘foreign matter contamination’


A popular brand of Salisbury steaks are being recalled nationwide this week because they may be contaminated with “foreign matter,” the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety & Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

The recall includes 135,159 pounds (67 tons) of Salisbury steak products (poultry, pork, and beef) from Conagra Brands Inc., a Russellville, Arkansas, company.

The FSIS said that the products “may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically bone.”

Sold as family-style dinners, the meat and brown gravy products were produced on March 10, 2018, according to the recall notice.

The recall comes after several complaints were lodged to the company, along with three reports of “minor oral injury” connected to eating the products, the agency said.

Here are the specs to look out for, according to the FSIS: 27-oz. carton containing plastic shrink-wrapped packages containing 6 pieces of “Banquet FAMILY SIZE 6 SALISBURY STEAKS & BROWN GRAVY MADE WITH CHICKEN, PORK AND BEEF – GRILL MARKS ADDED” with lot code 5006 8069 10 05and a ‘BEST BY’ date of SEP 01 2019 printed on the package./em>

On the side of the package, you can find the USDA inspection mark “P-115,” the agency said.

Customers who are concerned about getting sick are encouraged to contact their health care provider. If you do have the products in your home, you should get rid of them or return them to the store.

<“FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them,” the agency said.
