Popular frozen food brand recalls products after 'extraneous materials' were found inside
The frozen food company was forced to recall their products after consumers filed several complaints.
Conagra Brands is a multi-billion dollar frozen food company. On April 11, 2018, they announced a potentially dangerous food recall. The health risk was labeled as high.
The United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service shared that customers found “extraneous materials” like bones inside one of their staple frozen meals.
The product in question was Banquet’s family size Salisbury steaks and brown gravy dinners.
As shared by Winco Foods, the products were produced on March 10, 2018.
RECALL: CHECK YOUR FREEZER More than 135,000 pounds of Banquet family-size Salisbury steak and brown gravy dinners that may be contaminated with fragments of bone and other material are recalled. pic.twitter.com/V4nH8A6dm0— Big953FM (@Big953FM) April 13, 2018
135,000 pounds-worth of the products were reportedly distributed to retail locations all over the country, according to Faith Family America. This puts almost all states at risk.
As of now, there have been three complaints from consumers. They reported minor oral injury after they consumed the popular product.
The company has since decided to stop selling the said frozen food meal. Although, they expressed their concerns that consumers may still have the product inside their freezers.
Conagra Brands released a memo informing their consumers to get rid of the 27-oz. Banquet Family Size 6 Salisbury Steaks & Brown Gravy Made with Chicken, Pork, and Beef – Grill Marks Added packages.
The packages contain six pieces of meat and have an expiration date of September 1, 2019, with the lot code 5006 8069 10 05.
The company advised their consumers to dispose the product or return them to the place of purchase.
