J.T.M. Provisions Company recalled around 22,530 pounds of its frozen, ready-to-eat beef chili with beans due to the possibility they’ve been contaminated with plastic.
The products were purchased by USDA Foods for the National School Lunch Program and sent to distributors in California, New York, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The recall was issued after J.T.M. received a customer complaint about finding white plastic material in the chili with beans.
There have been no reported adverse reactions from consuming the recalled products. However, the U.S.Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is urging school nutrition operators to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
