The USDA is concerned that people may have the recalled meat products in their freezer. If you do have ground beef you’ve bought recently, be sure to check your packages. The products subject to recall will bear establishment number ‘EST. 86R’ inside the USDA mark of inspection.


Also, if you have purchased these products, the USDA urges people not to consume them, but rather throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
