Tyson recalls 93,000 pounds of contaminated beef


Tyson Fresh Meats, a division of Tyson Foods Inc. TSN, -1.27%, is recalling 93,697 pounds of ground beef over a possible contamination with a “mirror-like material.”

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the ground beef items were packaged on Nov. 2, and the issue was discovered after several customers found this mirror-like material in their meat after purchasing it from a grocery store.

  • 5-pound chubs containing “Hill Country fare ground beef 73% lean/27% fat with best before or freeze by: Nov. 25, 2022.”
  • 5-pound chubs containing “H-E-B ground chuck ground beef 80% lean/20% fat.”

It’s been a tough time for meat-lovers: Last week, the CDC warned that many people should “not eat meat or cheese from any deli counter” unless it was “steaming hot” due to a listeria outbreak.

But there could be some more meat alternatives on the horizon.

The Tyson recall news came as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Thursday that meat grown in a laboratory setting is safe for human consumption.

“Advancements in cell culture technology are enabling food developers to use animal cells obtained from livestock, poultry, and seafood in the production of food, with these products expected to be ready for the U.S. market in the near future.,” the FDA said. To be clear, such products are not yet on the U.S. market, but they have now received this preliminary vote of regulatory confidence.
