Toppenish-based meat company recalls 30,000 pounds of ground beef

Time to check the meat in your freezer! A local company, Washington Beef LLC, is recalling thousands of pounds of ground beef because the products could have pieces of plastic or metal in it.

The company, which is based out of Toppenish, says someone found extraneous material in one of its products last week.

Now, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced a recall of approximately 30,260 pounds of the company’s ground beef.

The products have an establishment number “EST. 235” and were produced on Dec. 27, 2018. They include a “Use or Freeze by” date of 01/20/19, so they may be in consumers’ freezers. View a full list of the products that are being recalled here.
