Consumers should be aware that federal authorities have recalled 130,000 pounds of ground beef that may contain plastic and was shipped to Colorado and other states.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Services warns consumers to throw away or return the meat.

The products being recalled are labled “Natures Rancher 100 percent Grass Fed Ground Beef 85% Lean, 15% Fat,” and “Nature’s Rancher 100% Grass Fed Organic Ground Beef 93 percent Lean, 7 percent Fat.”

Packages of both 85 percent and 93 percent lean have the same “use or freeze by dates.” Those dates are 10/24/19, 10/31/19, 11/04/19, 11/07/19, and 11/11/19.

The FSIS announced the recall of the New Jersey-based Rastelli Brothers beef products on Thursday.

The problem was discovered after FSIS received consumer complaints through the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline. The firm also notified FSIS that they received a consumer complaint directly.

The raw ground beef items were produced from Oct. 3, 2019 through Oct. 15, 2019.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Mike Kelly, vice president of sales at Rastelli, at (856) 803-1100.
