Frozen cheeseburger patties that are sold at South Carolina Wal-Marts have been recalled, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Wisconsin-based Kenosha Beef International is recalling more than 37,000 pounds of its 2-pound cartons that were sold under the “Sam’s Choice Fireside Gourmet Black Angus Beef Patties Bacon and Aged Cheddar” label. According to a release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the patties may contain pieces of gasket material.
All of the products were produced on June 11 and were distributed in both the Carolinas, Indiana, Maine, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Sam’s Choice is a private brand used by Wal-Mart. The packages have the establishment number “EST425B” and “best if used by” date code of 120812B.
The USDA says Kenosha told it about the problem after a consumer complained. Officials say they are not aware of anyone being sickened by the problem.
