FORT RILEY (WIBW) The Fort Riley Commissary is warning buyers of certain ground beef products.
Fort Riley Commissary Director Peter Howell says patrons who purchased 80 percent lean ground beef marked with a packed date of April 25, 2014 and an expiration date of April 26, 2014 are asked to discard it or return it to the commissary for a refund. Employees found metal flecks inside the grinder while they were disassembling the grinder for cleaning.
“Military food inspectors re-inspected the ground beef and found no evidence of metal flecks in the finished product,” said Howell. “We still felt it was best to caution patrons as the safety and well being of our patrons is the primary concern," said Howell.
No other fresh or frozen beef products are affected and only the 80-percent lean ground beef labeled with a pack date of April 25, 2014 and an expiration date of April 26, 2014, can be returned for a refund.
Patrons who purchased and consumed the 80 percent lean ground beef and are experiencing any symptoms should seek medical attention..
