Vienna Beef Recalls Frankfurters For Foreign Material

Vienna Beef Ltd., of Chicago, Illinois, is recalling about 2,030 pounds of beef frankfurters (beef frank links products) because they may be contaminated with foreign materials, more specifically metal pieces. This poses a choking hazard and can cause injuries to the mouth. There have not be any reports of adverse reactions of injury due to the consumption of these products.

The recalled Vienna Beef products are:

  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 6” 8’s 10#” with case code 013180 and package code 9122 on the label.
  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 6” 11’s 10#” with case code 013312 and package code 9122 or 9123 printed on the label.
  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 7” 9’s 10#” with case code 013490 and package code 9122 or 9123 represented on the label.

These products have the establishment number “EST. 1” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to food service locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. The problem was discovered by the establishment and reported to FSIS.

These products should not be served to customers. The USDA is concerned that they may be in food service refrigerators or freezers. The frankfurters should be thrown away in a sealed garbage container, or returned to the place of purchase. FSIS will conduct effectiveness checks to make sure the product is no longer available.

Symptoms of an allergic reaction can range from mild, including tingling of the mouth and lips, to severe, which can include hives, itching, and trouble breathing. Anyone who is experiencing these symptoms after eating food that contains potential allergens should see a doctor.
