Aurora Packing discovered the issue during traceback activities related to random testing.

Some of the contaminated meats might be stored in institutional facility freezers - and the department is urging businesses to check out their meat stock and dump the affected products.

Those with the affected products should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase. Products covered by the recall carry an establishment number of "EST. 788" inside the USDA mark of inspection and were shipped nationwide.

These include steak, ribs, and brisket cuts that are popular for summer cookouts and Memorial Day barbecues. Symptoms can begin in 48 ours, but may take more than a week to develop. This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. Anyone concerned about illnesses is instructed to contact a health care provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

This latest recall comes on the heels of similar problems of metal filings being found in Tyson chicken products and repeated produce recalls on items like strawberries and lettuce.
