A clerk working at a retail store noticed pieces of small blue plastic inside the chubs and alerted Sam Kane, FSIS said. The company said the source of the plastic is a rubber glove. There have been no reports of adverse reactions associated with the product, the agency noted.
The affected products include 10 lb. chubs of “HEB Ground Beef 73% Fine 6/10”. The chubs were produced and packaged on Sept. 11, 2014. The product bears the establishment number “EST 337” on the package box. The product was sent to retail establishments in Texas for further processing.
